Community Development Partnership news release:
Every business needs to find new customers and keep in touch with their existing ones. Next month the Community Development Partnership is collaborating with SCORE Cape Cod and Provincetown Commons to offer “Networking Like Your Business Depends On It… IT DOES!”
This workshop, which will be held at Provincetown Commons located at 46 Bradford Street, is an opportunity for these three organizations to work together to bring a workshop to small businesses in Provincetown. The workshop will run from 8:30 – 10am on Wednesday April 10, 2019. Marc Goldberg, Marketech Inc and SCORE mentor, will present “Networking Like Your Business Depends On It… IT DOES”. Successful businesses owners know that in order to grow a business, you need to expand your network. This workshop will provide participants with practical tools to widen theirsphere of influence and grow their business. Participants will leave this workshop with specific tools that they can use to plan, execute and follow up on their next networking opportunity.
Offering workshops in Provincetown is the next step in bringing the CDP’s services to Provincetown businesses. The CDP launched its business technical assistance at the Commons January 23, 2019. Lower Cape small businesses can meet with CDP staff for one-on-one individual consulting that often leads to finding solutions for specific business challenges. Drop-ins are welcome, but those with a scheduled appointment will be given preference.
Our spring workshops for small businesses are being generously sponsored by the Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. The CDP’s Business and Credit Program is funded through Mass Growth Capital Corporation, USDA Rural Development Rural Business Development Grant, Cape Air, Cape Cod Five Charitable Foundation Trust, Santander Bank and Seamen’s Bank Long Point Charitable Foundation.
ABOUT PROVINCETOWN COMMONS
Provincetown’s newest endeavor is dedicated to community, creativity and innovation. Located in the heart of Provincetown, The Commons occupies the nearly 10,000 square foot building located at 46 Bradford Street, once home to The Governor Bradford School and the town’s Community Center. Now operating as a registered non-profit organization, Provincetown Commons is currently completing phase one of a multi-phase renovation. The building offers a Community Room to host presentations and large meetings, 3 smaller meeting rooms, our Innovation Lab that will be home to people who enjoy co-working space and artist studios. Provincetown Commons supports creative professionals, artists, small enterprise, scientific and technological projects, and community initiatives through collaborative workspace, shared resources, educational programs, and economic development initiatives. Through the development and management of accessible space and resources, The Commons serves as a nexus for collaboration, vibrant relationships, and new economic opportunity for creative people in Provincetown.
ABOUT THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PARTNERSHIP
The Community Development Partnership supports an array of programs that strengthen our Lower Cape community, providing greater opportunities for all who live here to thrive.
Our work starts with creating affordable homes—so essential to a healthy economy, but a real challenge in communities like ours where seasonal and vacation dynamics drive the market beyond the reach of many who live and work locally all year round.
We also work to launch entrepreneurs and strengthen local businesses. We believe a vibrant future depends on sustaining traditional industries and inspiring new ones—especially when they’re based on renewable natural resources such as fishing and farming.
In all that we do, we aim to protect the natural environment around us through efforts that preserve the character and sustain the future of the Lower Cape.
