This first Erie Building Growth Cohort will help up to 5 startup and/or emerging BIPOC-Owned (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) contracting and construction businesses achieve higher performance.
Starting in May 2023, Bridgeway’s BID program will seek participants for its Building Growth Cohort in the Erie area. The program will pair peer and expert-driven learning with individualized supportive services to boost skills and confidence around running (and growing) a contracting and construction business.
The sessions will cover three main focus areas:
- Participants will better understand their business’s financial and operational fundamentals to ensure they are truly ready to grow.
- Experts will lead sessions on identifying, securing, and managing large-scale construction projects that take participants to higher levels of profitability and success.
- The Building Growth Cohort will conclude with sessions on leveraging newly acquired abilities for a more successful future.
