In a process to help grow small businesses by training them on their digital skillset, Facebook is launching an initiative called "Community Boost".
They have picked 30 cities to roll out this program and chose St. Louis to be the first one. Facebook is going to St. Louis March 26-30 to host courses on digital training for business owners, employees and people who just want to learn how to master their digital business skills follow by:
  • Houston, TX on April 3-6
  • Albuquerque, NM on April 30- May 4
  • Greenville, SC on May 29 -June 1
  • Des Moines, IA on June 4-8


Where Facebook's New Initiative "Community Boost" hopes to help.

"Small business owners know that they need skills they don't have, they just need the training and we're going to provide that training," said Aneesh Ramen, Facebook's manager of economic impact programs. "We'll have programs to help you think about how to get online, how to trade globally, how to reach customers, not just around the corner but around the world,"

Facebook said they chose St. Louis as the launch city for several reasons.

"There's so much interesting stuff happening in St. Louis around innovation, small businesses have a really strong community there, and we just think minority-owned businesses are a really integral part of the community. There's an impact that we can have," Ramen explained. 

"Just having a website and a Facebook page wasn't enough," said Blair.

Anyone can sign up for these training courses, provided first-hand by Facebook employees. Sign up on their website: https://www.facebook.com/business/m/community-boost
