Yukon College Innovation & Entrepreneurship has launched PIVOT., a program designed to help local companies minimize the effects of COVID-19 now and moving forward. Developed in partnership with the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency, the Government of Yukon, and the Department of Economic Development, the program will allow participants to work with experts to assess, respond, and adapt their businesses to the new reality. “We are experiencing unprecedented times and need to support each other,” said Yukon manager of I&E Manekin Beille. “COVID-19 is forcing many businesses to reassess their core functions and I&E has put in place the tools and supports to help our businesses remain vibrant and grow even more resilient.” Yukon (YK)
