The Helping 100 businesses for 100 days is one of the most unique programs you will ever participate in. And it is offered free of charge courtesy of the City of Newport beach.
In January, 2011, the city of Newport Beach joined the impressive list of other innovative cities to offer this unique program. Prior workshop partners include Santa Ana twice, Buena Park and most recently San Bernardino. The 4 hour program begins with a networking breakfast followed by the workshop and the invitation to join the 100 day program. This kick off event is free to all.
This program is designed to bring the entire community together, including all businesses, large and small, nonprofits, long term and new business owners as well as significant participants in the local economy such as banks. We believe that collaboration rather than competition will get us on the road to economic recovery.
Topics covers from day one until the conclusion include:

Which consists of 4 live classes and 6 teleseminars. Every 10-14 days we will interact with you as well as the rest of the students in the program.

OPIS programs are unique in that it is very hands on and involved- and fun!
