MEDICINE HAT & DISTRICT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE LAUNCHES LOCAL BUSINESS TOOL KIT

The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce launched a new Local Business Support Tool Kit to ensure all businesses have the resources to start and grow their business.

(Medicine Hat) The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce launched a new Local Business Support Tool Kit to ensure all businesses have the resources to start and grow their business. This Tool Kit is intended to help promote the success and long-term prosperity of our local businesses and our region by connecting businesses with essential resources and information.

“When our organization conducted strategic planning last year, we wanted to create a roadmap for success for our business community,” stated Scott Lehr, Chamber of Commerce President. “This new Tool Kit will do just that by assisting a range of businesses from startups to those looking to expand or perhaps those looking to save money or looking to hire new talent."

The Tool Kit has been created over several months, compiling information from various organizations and resources. The Chamber wanted to create a Tool Kit that would cover all areas of support that a start-up or entrepreneur may need. The Tool Kit was created to answer questions to various businesses needs and address topics many business request additional information about. The Chamber is open to expanding the Tool Kit as new areas, resources and information are identified so they can continue to grow the tools, resources and information available for business as an essential source of information and solutions.

“We saw a gap and a need for this type of resource and decided to take the opportunity to create something for our business community and provide it in one easy to find and accessible location on our website “, further remarked Lehr. “We’re pleased to be able to add this new Local Business Support Tool Kit to the many resources that we have to support the business community and help create a roadmap to guide businesses in their journey.”

The Chamber's Local Business Tool Kit features resources for business owners including, but not limited to:

  • A checklist of fundamental business elements.
  • Social media usage to build your brand.
  • E-Commerce and how it can help your sales.
  • Grants and funding for a hand in growth.
  • Recruitment and hiring to get the best people.
  • Local initiatives that benefit everyone.
