Has the COVID-19 pandemic hurt your bottom line?

If your business has been underperforming, and you feel as if you’re reacting to effects, rather than addressing underlying causes, the CEED | Recovery and Optimization program is here to help you adapt and reorient your enterprise.

This 6-week program offers four of its sessions during the first 30 days and is followed by individual advisory support. CEED screens all applications to ensure various industries are represented, with each cohort supporting up to six companies.

In this program you will:

  • Critically asses the current status of your business with SWOT and PESTLE analyses, addressing your organization’s health and longevity potential
  • Create a plan for the next 15 to 30 days to keep your business operating, by addressing cash flow, cost mitigation, marketing, operational changes and other elements
  • Compare your SWOT and PESTLE analyses to your current business model, focusing on revenues, costs, key partners, and channels
  • Develop a new optimized business model using the tools you will acquire through the program

What makes this program impactful?

Businesses rarely fail for only one reason. We will help you uncover all the reasons your business is struggling. And then we’ll help you figure out how to solve them.

These are not training classes. These are active meetings that will help you walk out of the program with a specific, practical and actionable plan.

To successfully meet challenges, we first have to understand them. If you’re ready to resolve your business distress, register for the CEED | Recovery & Optimization program today!

Firsthand Impact:

Warna Downey – La Femme Fatale

“The Recovery and Optimization program has put me on the right track to grow my business and to see the potential market that I can tap in to.”
Avery Birch – 365 Experience Inc.
“We’re still alive because of CEED. We were in a massive cash crunch, and if it weren’t for the help of CEED, I don’t know if we would have managed that well enough to still exist. The Recovery and Optimization program challenged us. It was neat, because one person would present a problem, and the rest of the participants would throw ideas against it. It became a peer-to-peer improvement session and a lot of great ideas came out of it.”
