PHOENIX — The Arizona Small Business Association has launched a virtual initiative aimed at helping businesses recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
The program, called Forge Ahead, will give business owners and employees access to personalized online training from leading industry experts to assist in the recovery of revenue and possible repositioning of funds.
The free courses will focus on strengthening financial acumen, developing a social media and digital marketing presence, and networking.
