Small Business Majority invites you to their event

Treasurer Fiona Ma and small business experts on small business issues through COVID-19

About this event

It's been two weeks since the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) opened for applications, yet many are still struggling to access the funding options they need to re-open their business.

Join State Treasurer Fiona Ma and Small Business Majority for an interactive webinar where we'll discuss updates for small businesses impacted by COVID-19 and provide an overview of state and federal funding options available to entrepreneurs. We'll also have a discussion about the history of community banks and how COVID-19 could shape what's next for lending in California.

Topics of discussion include:

  • Updates to federal and state assistance available to small business owners
  • The role of community banks throughout the COVID-19 crisis
  • Overview of the California Capital Access Program (CalCAP), which incentivizes financial institutions to make loans to small businesses owners 
  • Predatory lending practices and Small Business Majority's Lender Checklist
  • New research on COVID-19's impact on small business
  • Venturize, resources and Q&A
