The Greenhouse seeks to understand how small businesses are dealing with the pandemic disruption and what the community can offer to help small business owners overcome the challenges they are currently facing.
We want to hear directly from our business owners about their challenges, pivots and plans to move through this period. Through a moderated discussion, we are looking to ascertain the current landscape directly from our community’s small businesses. Information we collect from these connection sessions will be used to help us craft aid and additional services as we continue to move through this pandemic. Please join us for this important conversation.
Businesses with fewer than 500 employees account for 48% of American jobs and 43.5% of GDP (SBA, 2018). Yet while these smaller firms are an essential part of the U.S. economy, they’re often the most financially fragile, with little cash on hand or resources to buffer a financial shock. For these small businesses to come back after the pandemic, and once again serve as an engine of American innovation, they need assistance, aid and support.
