Downtown Winnipeg BIZ: Memo - The latest information for BIZ Members

Dear Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Member,

We know our Downtown Winnipeg BIZ members need support to make it through this challenging time. Today, we’re launching a grant program to help you build capacity or adapt your business to generate revenue. It’s all about trying to manage challenges the pandemic has presented.

Downtown Winnipeg has plenty of experts – many of them the best in their fields. The new Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Connect Grant will connect member businesses that need support with Downtown Winnipeg BIZ member experts who can provide it.

Apply for the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Connect Grant today!

The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Connect Grant is a services program designed to help small downtown businesses sustain the second wave of COVID-19. Applicants will select an area where they need to build capacity or adapt their business to help them generate revenue through the pandemic.

Downtown Winnipeg BIZ Connect Grant recipients will be connected with other businesses in the downtown area who can provide the service they need. Simply put, each grant awarded supports two downtown businesses.

Some examples of services the grant can help with include:

  • Marketing/advertising/branding/graphic design
  • Web services, including adding an online selling platform to your website
  • Finance/accounting
  • HR, including staffing solutions and strategies
  • Legal services
  • IT support
  • Business strategy

Grants will be awarded to qualifying Downtown Winnipeg BIZ members on a first-come, first-served basis so we encourage you to apply soon.
