COVID Response

Response to COVID-19

Navigate is committed to taking proactive measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The health and safety of our clients, users, students, co-workers, families and communities are paramount as is helping to protect the most vulnerable members of our community and our healthcare professionals by demonstrating leadership in social distancing and working remotely.
While Navigate’s drop-in spaces including the Entrepreneurship Centre, MakerSpace, and Business Incubator are currently physically closed, we are still here to assist you with remote programming and services.

If you would like to set up an appointment to discuss your business idea or request support and information, please email Allison Rowe, Navigate Manager, at allisonr@grenfell.mun.ca

We will continue to assist clients remotely until such time as we can safely reopen our doors to clients, students and the community. In the meantime, we encourage you to:

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for tips, opportunities and updates on upcoming events.

Navigate will continue to closely monitor the many emergency measures that are being put in place to help small businesses during the coming months and will be sharing this information as it becomes available. We also invite you, our clients, to share with us any information or best practices you have discovered that can help your fellow businesses owners navigate these uncharted waters. We all have a role to play in supporting one another through these unprecedented times.

Adaptation and resilience are key skills in the arsenal of any entrepreneur, and together we are uniquely positioned to turn crises into opportunities for learning and innovation.

We urge you to stay safe and take care during these uncertain times and encourage you to follow the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador’s recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at https://www.gov.nl.ca/covid-19/.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
