Resilient Powell River has partnered with Spring, a global incubator and accelerator that empowers entrepreneurs and entrepreneur ecosystem organizations, to launch the Build Back Better Challenge, a newly-established $10,000 grant fund to help entrepreneurs and business owners in various communities across British Columbia to invest in growth initiatives. The challenge is designed to equip businesses with new skills to thrive through the completion of a free online learning Business Resilience Program.

Small businesses in British Columbia make up the majority of our province's businesses, and with 3.5 million entrepreneurs nationally, they play a pivotal role in re-stabilizing the economy as we recover from this pandemic and future downturns.

Entrepreneurs need help to survive and thrive during this challenging recovery period, and donors, funders, and communities are looking for a way to provide support for those businesses.

This is your opportunity to speed up your game and get the support you need through the different masterclasses on the Business Resilience Program while creating a business plan to get a chance to win a $10,000 prize.

To be part of the Build Back Better Challenge you just need to follow these steps:

1. Join the Business Resilience Program and get the help you need.

2. Create a business plan to grow, that address at least one UN Sustainable Development Goals

3. Submit your plan for a chance to win our $10,000 award.

Enroll today in the Business Resilience Program. The deadline to enroll is November 30th,

2020 and the deadline to submit your business plan is January 15th, 2021.

Good Luck and we look forward to seeing your growth plan soon!
