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 Leigh Tillman.
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 Tuesdays from 11:00am-1:00pm for ten sessions.
The inspiration for this offering is based on our regular FocusME programming, which we run in collaboration with the Portland SCORE chapter.
Where will FocusME: COVID-19 Edition be held?
This program will be held virtually via Zoom.
What does it cost?
There is no cost to participate in FocusME: COVID-19 Edition.
Please note: While we typically charge for our FocusME cohorts, we recognize that paying for the program in these uncertain times may be difficult for many.
