Covid Resource Network
Community Conquers COVID
Look to WBCs for no-cost resources to help your small businesses survive and thrive
As part of the CARES Act, the Women’s Business Centers of Ohio (WBC) have been funded by the Small Business Administration (SBA) to offer the COVID Resource Network (CRN), a new statewide program that supports entrepreneurs directly impacted by COVID-19.
Qualified small businesses can receive assistance from experts in accounting, legal, HR, marketing, IT, ecommerce and more, at no cost.
Become a member of the Women’s Business Center and you’ll also gain access to general business education and resources that can help you through COVID and beyond.
If you’re interested in receiving support for your company, contact us today and let’s discuss your COVID recovery plan.
The CRN is designed to assist small business owners who are impacted by COVID-19. To receive no-cost assistance, businesses must be:
- Owned and operated by an entrepreneur who is in one of these groups: female, minority, socially or economically disadvantaged
- Directly impacted by COVID-19, including
- Loss of revenue
- Employment loss
- Temporary closure of business
- Business model pivot
- Restricted by government regulations
- For profit (registered with the secretary of state)
- Operational prior to February 15, 2020
The WBCs is offering basic access to the CRN, a curated suite of business consultants, for expert one-on-one business advice in these fields:
- Human Resources
- Marketing and Web Design
- Sales and Acquisitions
