Empowering Our Small Business to Thrive in the 21st Century
Small businesses are the bedrock of the American economy and spirit: accounting for 99% of all businesses in the U.S. (i.e., businesses with 500 or fewer employees), and make up approximately 50% of our GDP. Moreover, small business owners contribute to their communities in immense ways. This panel will explore the economic landscape of Latino small businesses in America, particularly in light of, and in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, the panel will present how small businesses can qualify for federal government support ahead of May 2023, when the COVID-19 declaration is set to lift.Click Here to Register for the Conference
