FocusME Covid-19 Edition Winter 2021

Female-led businesses are particularly hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic as they face structural barriers, limited access to finance, and information asymmetry. That’s why we are offering FocusME: COVID-19 Edition.

Our facilitated peer-to-peer groups support female entrepreneurs in sharing common struggles, identifying action steps, and achieving their goals. In this new version of FocusME, participants will share and workshop their unique challenges related to COVID-19 in a supportive environment with facilitator Hazel Stark.

Once you’ve registered, we will contact you and ask you to complete a short questionnaire to help us learn more about your business and current challenges that you are facing. We will review your responses and contact you with any questions we might have.

This program will meet virtually on Wednesdays from 8:30am-10:30am for ten sessions. The session dates are: January 13, January 20, January 27, February 3, February 10, February 17, February 24, March 3, March 10, and March 17.

The inspiration for this offering is based on our regular FocusME programming, which we run in collaboration with the Portland SCORE chapter.
