About B-TAP Professional Series

Facilitating Business Knowledge Exchange

B-TAP Professional Series, a component of the City of Minneapolis’ Business Technical Assistance Program (B-TAP), aims to respond quickly to opportunities to support small business growth. The goal is to sponsor a series of events in 2018 where local professional experts provide training or technical assistance on topics that help entrepreneurs, particularly those that have been underrepresented, take their businesses to the next level.

Why is the City creating this program?

We believe that our city has vast professional talent, innovation, and creativity that can benefit our small business community. We want to tap into the innovative ideas of those professionals that respond to the needs of entrepreneurs. We want to provide more specialized assistance beyond that offered in the core B-TAP program and to an expanded audience of businesses.

How it works:

The City of Minneapolis is piloting this call for ideas from local professionals and technical assistance providers. Responders will propose an idea for some sort of technical assistance for businesses that responds to a need that they have and if selected will have to deliver it in a short timeframe. Awards vary from $2,500 to $7,500, depending on the level of detail and impact in the target population. Up to five ideas will be selected.
