Richmond Launches Business Resilience Program

The City of Richmond has launched a Business Resilience Program to help local entrepreneurs recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and adapt their businesses so they can emerge from the crisis thriving and able to withstand future economic shocks.

This free program provides businesses with tools and resources from experts including videos, templates, and worksheets that can be accessed at the user’s own pace. It is designed to take an entrepreneur through the process of assessing their current situation, developing new plans, and taking simple and achievable steps to strengthen their business.

Users will also have access to an online community of local entrepreneurs sharing their best practices and ideas, as well as one-on-one support from the City’s Economic Development Office.

Businesses can register for the Richmond Business Resilience Program online at
