Here's how we can help:

Schedule a Consultation:

We'd welcome the opportunity to speak one on one with you about your challenges, questions or ideas/actions you are taking or considering. A fresh, indpendent perspective may be helpful in identifying and thinking through options for navigating this environment. We can help you think about:

-Finding new sources of demand or revenue

-Adapting products of services

-Changing business practices

-Navigating cashflow and funding challenges

-Dealing with workforce challenges

-Leveraging technology to reach customers or facilitate remote work or collaboration with suppliers or partners. 

- ...anything else that's on your mind

We don't have all the answers, but maybe we can help identify a path forward and/or connect you to others with epertise and resources.

-We will respond directly and/or look to provide information related to common questions as well as curate and share ideas and resources. 

Legal Questions:

Do you have questions relating to contracts of other agreements that may be in place and how they are impacted by COVID-19? Or, how might you change new contracts to reflect this environment? AMRII has in-kind partners that offer meeting with business attorneys that can help you better understand your legal options.
