For all business workshops

Technology Workshops to help you sell beyond your storefront.

All of our businesses are experiencing significant business interruption as a result of the unprecedented effects of the COVID-19 pandemic - especially those who did not have an online presence.

In an effort to help businesses become more resilient, adapt to the new normal and transition to a stronger online presence, the City of Coral Gables presents a Technology Workshop Series. The free workshops and subsequent course material are designed to give businesses the information and skillset needed to improve their selling capability beyond their brick and mortar stores.

The technology workshops are divided into three groups: (1) a digital boot camp with online marketing essentials; (2) an instructional and comprehensive program to add an e-commerce component to your business; and (3) learn how innovative apps can help businesses make sales. 

We encourage business owners, managers and their employees to sign up!
