We love helping small businesses and entrepreneurs overcome their challenges and grow on to be successful. Each success is a win for the Washington, D.C. ecosystem.

But what happens when business reality sets in and you can’t help for free? Time is money and without money, no time to do much free stuff.

At BloomShift™ we feel there has got to be a way to help small business when they need the most help, when small and strapped cash. And we’re not alone, many organizations also want to help support and grow successful enterprises.

Well, our gracious partners at the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GWHCC) provide a Small Business Technical Assistance (TA) program to support minority-owned small businesses. They have selected a consultant from BloomShift™ to be a digital marketing TA provider for their program.

It’s a win for startups and small businesses!

The program will allow a qualified BloomShift™ technical expert to impart their knowledge and help small businesses improve processes, sales and marketing strategies. This means you get up to 25 hours of marketing technical assistance for FREE, sponsored by our partner. It’s a win-win!


To help business owners learn more about this program, BloomShift™ will host a webinar on Tuesday, February 20th 6:00–6:30pm EST to further discuss this technical assistance opportunity, the available tools, and the process. Register for the webinar in the form below; if it’s past the date, you’ll receive the recording.

“Marketing effectively is the PROCESS of telling a true story, one that resonates, one that matters to people, and to REPEAT it often enough that it creates value for them and your company.“
— Steven A. Rodriguez, CoFounder, BloomShift™
