Your Corner – Our Newsletter

Hey Coworker,

As we head into another challenging few weeks with schools closed and businesses severely curtailed, The Corner is here for you. Now, soon & later…when you’re ready. 🤗

This is the latest edition of “Your Corner” – May 2021, a newsletter that brings you insights and information about #entrepreneurship, #coworking and what’s happening at The Corner. Last month we asked about what makes your ‘perfect workspace’, it’s great to hear that you want to be around other professionals (40% of respondents) and Good Tunes are also important (another 40%). You’ll find both right here at The Corner. During the pandemic, what has helped you and your business the most? Just click to vote!

In an effort to ensure Cochrane-based businesses are effectively accessing Provincial and National COVID-19 funding programs, the Cochrane Economic Recovery Task Force has initiated a program to support businesses in gaining access to professional service providers. Along with a partnership with the Cochrane & District Chamber of Commerce, these funds will be made available to local Cochrane businesses beginning March 9th, 2021.
