SBA Loans

  • Contact your insurance broker. Do you have business interruption insurance and does this qualify for your business?

  • Encourage your team to apply for unemployment if they have lost hours or wages due to the impact of COVID-19, this applies to W2 AND Self-Employed. 
  • Ask Questions! The Economic Development Collaborative is offering free consulting for businesses that have experienced the following concerns or disruptions:
  • The Keeping American Workers Paid and Employed ActNOT PASSED YET
    • Provides $377 billion to help prevent workers from losing their jobs and small businesses from going under due to economic losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It provides 8 weeks of cash-flow assistance through 100 percent federally guaranteed loans to small employers who maintain their payroll during this emergency. This proposal would be retroactive to February 15, 2020 to help bring workers who may have already been laid off back onto payrolls.

We believe in Startups, and we believe they will be essential to our economy and our workers worldwide in these tough times. The world is fundamentally different than it was in January and we are doing what we can to help.

We have collaborated with several companies and are launching a resource guide around alternative funding sources, SBA loans, disaster loans, and everything we can find to help you in these times.

This is a living resource, please send us updates and share to help companies in need.

Together, we've got this.
