“A survey conducted by Buffalo Niagara Partnership (BNP) found that 93% of Buffalo area businesses have seen a revenue decline, most by 50%.”
Those are some scary numbers, especially for those who own and operate these businesses, many of which are small. The small business community is what makes this city tick. For years, we have been watching the WNY economy strengthen, along with numerous economic corridors. While Buffalo as a whole remains strong, in the face of the pandemic, there is an obvious need for support structures and opportunities, to help these businesses to grow and rebound.
That’s where Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll) and Entrepreneurs Forever (eforever) come in. These two non-profits recently teamed up with a third non-profit – the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) – to offer free programs for local businesses and entrepreneurs this fall, in the hope of accelerating economic and social impacts in WNY.
