Helping Small Businesses Stay Viable in a Pandemic

Tue, 05/12/2020 - 15:10

Stony Brook University's College of Business will offer an online course starting Monday to provide small businesses owners with guidance on keeping their businesses viable in the midst of the pandemic. The deadline for registration is Wednesday, May 13, and applications are available on the college's website.

The course, titled Pandemic Shift, was developed by Stefan Doering, the managing director of Shift Group, an online education company for entrepreneurs, and Tom Moebus, a founder of TexXGrow, a small business consulting firm.

It will consist of four 90-minute workshops designed to help business owners create a support network, develop strategies to remain financially stable, and explore ways to enter new markets and find new customers, according to Mr. Moebus.

Twenty-four students will be admitted to the course, Mr. Doering said, but the college plans to continue offering the classes throughout the year, and they will be able to accommodate 30 to 36 people.
