Case Study: Digital Business Accelerator with EforAll


R3SET Academy: Empowering Communities Through Online Learning

Scope of Project: R3SET Academy, a groundbreaking online learning platform, emerged as a response to the COVID-19 crisis. The project aimed to foster innovation, collaboration, and community impact by providing accessible online education to local businesses and individuals. Collaborating with organizations like EforAll, Greylock Federal, and Mass Growth Capital, R3SET Academy strived to equip Berkshire County with the tools and knowledge necessary to navigate challenging times and enhance economic resilience.

Problem: The COVID-19 crisis necessitated rapid adaptation for local businesses to survive. Many lacked the digital infrastructure to transition online and maintain operations. Furthermore, the pandemic underscored the need for inclusive economic systems that could support and empower all community members, irrespective of their background.

Solution: R3SET Academy seized the opportunity to innovate by launching an online learning platform tailored to Berkshire County’s needs. Through partnerships with EforAll and generous sponsorship from Greylock Federal and Mass Growth Capital, the initiative introduced the first-ever Digital Business Solutions Online Class. This program aimed to help local businesses swiftly establish their online presence and navigate the new business landscape. By providing free access to courses, R3SET Academy aligned with the “each one teach one” philosophy, fostering community-based online learning.

Impact/Results: The results of R3SET Academy’s efforts have been significant. Over 50 local businesses successfully completed the Digital Business Solutions Online Class, enabling them to adapt and thrive in the digital realm. The initiative’s success led to the expansion of the program, with two more classes planned for 2022. The concept of an Inclusive Economic Group Think Tank emerged, reflecting the vision of creating an economic system that caters to the needs and aspirations of the entire community. Through R3SET Academy, innovative solutions and collaborative efforts are paving the way for a more inclusive and resilient economic landscape in Berkshire County.
