The City of Dublin has announced the launch of the Small Business Navigator Program, a new initiative aimed at providing small businesses in the city with free technical support to assist with their sustainability and growth. The program is part of the City's Business Recovery Playbook and aims to provide timely, relevant, and specific support and expertise to local businesses.
The program provides small businesses with access to qualified service providers in key functional areas, such as business planning and development; marketing and advertising; architecture and space design; technology consulting; and more. The program also provides legal services; human resources and management; financial guidance; and other general services.
To be eligible for the program, businesses must have a brick-and-mortar location in the City of Dublin, possess an active City business license, have fewer than 50 full-time employees, and be independently owned. Requests will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis, and accepted on a rolling basis until program funding has been exhausted.
The Small Business Navigator Program is now accepting applications, which can be accessed on the City's website. To learn more about the program, the Office of Economic Development will be hosting a webinar for local businesses on Thursday, April 27, 2023, at 12:00 p.m., via Zoom.
