Plan Ahead Brooklyn
EWVIDCO is very excited to announce our newest project, Plan Ahead: North Brooklyn. This initiative is designed to link local industrial businesses with the resources they need to develop long-term plans for sustainable growth. Plan Ahead will include a series of workshops and roundtable events targeting long-term growth issues like succession planning, lean manufacturing, e-commerce, and marketing. Plan Ahead will also work with a small group of businesses to provide targeted one-on-one support. Selection for this process will be competitive, with selected business receiving expert consulting services tied to a specific growth initiative. Applications for one-on-one support can be downloaded here, with final selection taking place in early 2011. Contact Caitlin Dourmashkin at 718-388-7287 x116 or cdourmashkin@ewvidco.com for more information.
