The WBI Announces Immediate Covid-19 Response Relief in Business Triage Program

We’re dedicated to the economic health of the communities of North Central Massachusetts.  In order to directly and meaningfully respond to the economic issues of our cities and towns, which have been exacerbated by the current pandemic the WBI is expanding to include locations in Fitchburg, MA and Orange, MA.

‘In direct response to the challenges exacerbated by our global health crisis, the WBI re-allocating 35% of our existing budget to expand our Business Triage Program to locations in Fitchburg and Orange’ said Executive Director Scott M. Graves.  ‘We are actively seeking additional private and public sources of funding for Business Triage to implement in the north central region and to sustain it for our existing location in Gardner.  We are extremely eager to dig in and help our fellow entrepreneurs.’

The Fitchburg location is in partnership with the Fitchburg Redevelopment Authority.  FRA Executive Director Meagan Donoghue said, ‘The FRA is eager to partner with the WBI to bring innovative programming and mentoring to the Fitchburg business community. This exciting endeavor fits within our mission to provide business development in the community and we’re pleased the WBI has chosen Fitchburg and the FRA to partner with.’

Clients can expect premium service from experienced WBI senior mentors. The Business Triage Program will include: 

  • Weekly Mastermind sessions town hall style held remotely and in person when deemed safe.  New prospects and existing clients can participate.
  • A custom intake interview to determine specific project parameters for improving the client’s business.  
  • One on one mentorship on a bi-weekly basis
  • Clients receive small, incremental goals and are held accountable to those goals on a bi-weekly basis.

Included in these sessions are business owners from all over the country to strategize and determine ways to address current issues we all face during the pandemic.

‘Orange is a town comprised of almost entirely small business owners,’ said Orange Community Development Director Alec Wade about making the move to host the WBI in Orange. ‘The pandemic has most certainly created unique challenges and forced changes in business operation. Scott and his team will work hard to help our business owners pivot and evolve their business to meet the current conditions. We are ecstatic to be able to host such a business-friendly service to our business community.’


WBI staff will have a presence in the communities in which we serve.  Our new locations are Orange Location at LaunchSpace: 131 W Main St. Suite 342 Orange, MA 01364 and for Fitchburg 166 Boulder Dr. Suite 104, Fitchburg, MA 01420.
