Economic developers are now in one of the most difficult positions we’ve ever been in as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. We want to offer economic developers more help to address these challenges.
In a response to public health policies many businesses closed down to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Even businesses that remained open or have reopened are operating at a limited capacity.
- Local business owners (many of which are still at home) are thinking about how they can improve business and gain back lost revenues once things get back to normal. Businesses that are reopening are looking for solutions to jumpstart back into business.
- Entrepreneurial workers are planning the business they’ve always dreamed of opening.
- Laid-off workers may have no choice but to pursue some type of self-employment as unemployment is the highest it’s been since the Great Depression.
With the need for business assistance in high demand but short supply, and with scarce ability to go personally sit down with any business advice experts because of social distancing, online resources will be the only option available to plan for their new business or to resurrect their current company.
