We’re thrilled to announce that Edios won bronze in the Best Advance in Social Impact Innovation category at The Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards. We partnered with CreativeLive and the emes project last year to produce Back to Biz, a recovery program for small businesses.
Back to Biz online content helps small business owners expand their knowledge and skills. Topics include hiring talent, selling online, building a brand, pivoting business models, creating new revenue streams, finding ideal customers, managing stress, and so much more.
Edios developed and produced 14 original classes for the project, with dozens of video lessons in finance, marketing, e-commerce, and wellness.
We also produced video case studies featuring renowned small business owners who successfully pivoted during the pandemic, including Top Chef competitor Shota Nakajima (owner of restaurants Taku and Banzai Teriyaki) and Ellen Bennett (owner of Hedley & Bennett).
In the end, Back to Biz featured more than 400 video-based lessons, real-life success stories, and inspiring entrepreneur interviews. We’re also very proud of the overwhelmingly positive learner response.
“I am beyond happy with this course and highly recommend it to everyone in business who wants more information on the various types of financing.” —Nicole Ferris (commenting on the class Fund Your Business for Growth with Susan Schreter)
Winning in the Best Advance in Social Impact Innovation category is extra sweet for Edios because it speaks directly to our mission of driving real impact through engaging educational experiences. Thank you, HCM!
