The CoVid-19 pandemic has wrought disaster upon small businesses and the people and communities dependent upon them, with Fortune estimating over 100,000 closures.

Promising solutions exist. This webinar series will draw public, policymaker, and entrepreneur awareness of these opportunities.

Participants will hear from researchers, executives, and entrepreneurs driving these innovations.

Intended Audience:

  • Economic Development Professionals, Researchers, and Students
  • Policymakers
  • Entrepreneurs and the Impact Investment Community

Participants will:

  1. Become aware of challenges facing small businesses in policy, markets, and fair competition;
  2. Learn alternative community economic development strategies used by communities in addressing these challenges;
