Training & Technical Assistance
Entrepreneurs Forever (eforever) provides valuable support and guidance for entrepreneurs through a system of community-based peer groups. Together, business owners give and receive support, work through challenges, and cultivate the skills that stabilize and grow their businesses.
- Peer Groups: Groups meet for two hours and consist of 6-12 entrepreneurs from a mix of different industries. Each group also has a trained facilitator, a former or current experienced business owner, who introduces critical topic areas and provides models for how to work through various business issues.
- One-on-One Coaching: Through our eforever facilitators, members can access a variety of other eforever staff members that have subject matter expertise in specific content areas or can connect them with other experts. From time to time, critical issues arise in businesses that require more intensive coaching, and the eforever staff is available for extra assistance.
- National Network: The eforever program has more than 300 members and alumni. Originally launched in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the eforever program has also expanded to Massachusetts. As the program grows across the country, each eforever member will gain access to a national network of entrepreneurs. Follow eforever on Facebook and Instagram where members from across the country are highlighted weekly.
