Small Business Support
Located in the northeastern part of the state, Youngstown is equidistant from Cleveland and Pittsburg. Once a thriving steel industry town, Youngstown has lost 60% of its population since the 1970’s. These days, the city is focused on leveraging its assets: the downtown riverfront, local university and hospitals, industrial employers, and local entrepreneurs.
When the pandemic hit, 59.8% of Ohio small businesses did not have an online presence. This eliminated the opportunity for them to engage and sell products with their customers during shutdowns. Through our webinar training, “E-tail Strategies: Get Your Business Online!”, local entrepreneurs and business owners in Youngstown received training and resources to help do just that – get their business online!
