LiftFund understands these are trying times for small businesses, and has been responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by working closely with small business owners across our footprint.
In an effort to elevate their voices, we are spearheading a statewide virtual series that focusing on small businesses navigating this year’s unprecedented challenges, the opportunities and threats they face, the reopening of businesses, and the support available to help them survive. The series will feature diverse small business owners, complemented by timely, relevant data.
Our first session, hosted earlier this month, included business owners Pilar Gonzalez, owner of DipIt by Pilar from the Rio Grande Valley; Sakara Ross, owner of SNR Construction from Houston; and Michelle Matta, owner of A Turtle Loves Me from North Texas and LiftFund’s President & CEO Janie Barrera. The insightful discussion was moderated by journalist Michael Taylor.
