Vol.2019 No.7 - April 8 New partnership


BECMA is proud to announce a new partnership with Interise, one of the nation's premier business growth organizations. By working alongside Interise, we are able to connect our business members with their StreetWise 'MBA' program, which shares valuable resources that help scale up businesses to prepare them for more lucrative opportunities.

With this new partnership, BECMA is prepared to cover a portion of the program fee for our members! If you wish to learn more about the qualifications of the program, sign up to become a member today. Additional details of the program, along with information from our new partner, will be shared with our members shortly.

Thank you, *|FNAME|*, and please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Many conversations have been held about the potential impact of the new Opportunity Zone program on the city of Boston, but none have been held in the neighborhoods designated as Opportunity Zones. BECMA, in partnership with the Boston Ujima Project and LISC Boston, is changing this by convening a conversation meant to bring all stakeholders -- residents, business owners, developers, investors, civic and nonprofit organizations -- to the table between two Boston Opportunity Zones located in Roxbury and Dorchester. Learn more here.

Our monthly Advoceats program is a new way of connecting our members and other small business owners directly with their elected representatives. We are providing stakeholders with the opportunity to hear the legislative priorities of the representatives and to advocate for issues. This is a member- and invite-only program at our office. RSVP required as space is limited. Light refreshments will be provided. Not a member? Sign up here.

We are proud to partner with MDK Brand Management to provide the first in a series of "Building A Bankable Brand" workshops to equip our members and budding entrepreneurs with the proper tools to build a new or better brand for their business. Workshops will be led by Denise Kaigler, a brand consultant who has worked with major Fortune 500 companies. We are providing a significantly discounted session along with networking opportunities.
