Making Sense of the PPP Now that You Got It

5/15/2020 4-5pm EST

This workshop will identify key parts of the PPP guidance. There will be a particular focus on how the self-employed can prepare to receive loan forgiveness, while discussing the broader components notable for all PPP recipients. We’ll discuss misconceptions and the processes and tools that will help you provide your lender with all they need.


Small Business COVID-19 Webinars for This Week – This week’s offerings include COVID-19 Marketing, E-Commerce 101, and Legal Essentials of Doing Business Online.

Specific Requests – If you would like a webinar on a specific topic, a Start Small staff member to join a town hall or call with your community, a COVID-19 Rapid Response Program open house info session for your community, or a co-branded flyer for an event, please reach out. I am happy to assist.

Feedback – Do you have any feedback to share? I would love to hear any of your updates, concerns, comments, stories, or other feedback.

As always, you can find info sheets and flyers for social media and model emails in our Community Partner Media Kit.
