The City of Coral Springs has launched a new web site, www.csbizassist.org, as part of its latest initiative to support local businesses and help them address challenges within the current economic environment. The effort was implemented in concert with the Economic Development Foundation, the City’s private, non-profit agent for economic development.
In April 2008, a Business Needs Assessment was conducted, which surveyed 200 local businesses about their needs and wants. To help address these needs, partner organizations including Broward College, Barry University and the Coral Springs Chamber of Commerce will offer instruction in and resources for business planning, marketing, workforce training and education, obtaining financing, customer service training, networking and creating strategic alliances.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for our business community to obtain assistance in difficult economic times, and if we can continue to validate the true needs of our business community and their willingness to participate, there is no limit what we do together,” EDF director Paul Cawley said.
