A virtual Summer Small Business Boot Camp was launched in Clatsop County after COVID-19 shuttered businesses, kept tourists away from a county heavily reliant on tourism, and drove the unemployment rate to almost 25%.

Lindsay Davis, OSU Extension in Clatsop County, and Jessica Newhall, Associate Director of the Clatsop Small Business Development Center, joined Interim Vice Provost Anita Azarenko to share how they collaborated to build core business skills and economic resiliency in Clatsop County. It is a model that can be replicated in other counties across Oregon.

Tell us what you inspires you about this collaboration in the comment section on the blog post and reach out to Lindsay and Jessica to learn more.
