SJBusiness Partners is teaming up with Lowcountry Local First to launch the Local Works initiative. Want to know more? We figured so…
What Is It?
Consider it a business makeover for a local business by local business service providers. The Local Works Team is donating their professional expertise to a local small business in order to help them get to the next level.
Who Is It For?
Any local independently owned business looking to take their business to the next level and is open to the recommendations of the Local Works Team. The winner must be a member of Lowcountry Local First.
What Services Are Donated?
To date, more than $50,000 worth of business services have been donated. Services include but are not limited to brand and marketing strategy, point of sale system and accounting interface assistance, work space organization and restructure, team building coaching, entrepreneur mentorship, employee customer service training, balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow analysis. Based on the winning business’s specific situation, this may also include physical space cleaning, redesign, and minor construction. Support throughout the year from the Local Works team is also included.
What’s The Timeline?
Applications will be accepted beginning October 1st and will close November 15th. The winner will be announced at the LLF member meeting on December 12. The actual makeover project will be implemented in January 2013.
What Does The Business Have To Do?
The winning business must be willing to let the Local Works team see everything they need in order to provide the highest level service as well as allow these experts to do what they do best.
