ABOUT THE INTERVIEWERS

The BEAR Interviewers are trained to conduct interviews with local businesses.  Interviewers use the statewide BEAR survey to gather information, then present their findings to the Assessment Team.

All individual business information is held in strict confidence.

ABOUT THE ASSESSMENT TEAM

The BEAR Assessment Team is a large and diverse group of public and private sector volunteers who meet twice a month to

  • review the data that is collected during each interview
  • identify areas of need or potential opportunity for each business
  • recommend resources who can provide assistance to help each business succeed

The role of the Assessment Team is to help businesses evaluate their growth potential, address the known areas of concern and make them aware of opportunities that may be beneficial to their business.

All individual business information is held in strict confidence.

ABOUT THE RESOURCE TEAM

The BEAR Resource Team is also a large and diverse group of community members who volunteer to provide business or technical assistance to BEAR clients.

  • All initial consultations are free.
  • Some services, such as those from public sector entities, are free.
  • Business owners and private sector volunteers agree to provide two free hours of service.*

* After two hours, any services provided and fees associated with them will be determined solely by the business owner and the Resource Provider. BEAR Team members are volunteers and do not solicit on-going work or expect to be engaged following the initial assignment.

All individual business information is held in strict confidence.
