The Piney Regional Chamber of Commerce (PRCC) is conducting research and analyzing the potential uses of a $25000 grant to bring in new business opportunities to the area. As a part of the research, the PRCC is administering an online survey.
The survey asks to provide information regarding the products and services that current and potential business produce. Additionally, the survey asks for opinions on the likelihood of renting space at a co-working, makers’ space, and/or commercial kitchen facility. These responses will assist in determining the best use of a potential facility for entrepreneurs in the RM of Piney and surrounding areas.
Survey results will be kept strictly confidential. Responses will be analyzed and reported only in the aggregate (totals). No individuals or companies will be identified in the published results.
At the end of the survey, respondents can choose to provide their email address for updates about the results. This response will be stored separately, and the information will be provided only to the PRCC who will use it only for commercial revitalization purposes. All your other responses will be kept confidential and won’t be associated with your email or your business name.
For your reference, the following terms are used throughout the survey to describe potential uses of the grant:
Co-working space: Provides rented office space, conference rooms, and other business services to small businesses and entrepreneurs. This co-working environment allows for collaboration and networking among entrepreneurs with related interests and business goals.
Makers’ space: A facility for makers to rent space and equipment to create and build their products. Makers’ space also allows for a shared-community of creators to collaborate on projects and/or pilot a business plan.
Commercial kitchen: A rentable kitchen and space for food related entrepreneurs to use. This facility may also include other amenities such as business services and office space to assist the entrepreneurs as they continue to build their business.
