Innovation and it's role in COVID19

 

Please join us for a joint webinar featuring representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and Shasta-Cascade Small Business Development Center (SBDC).

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will discuss SBA programs and services to assist your business in recovering from the COVID-19 crisis.  The presentation will cover COVID-19 relief programs, SBA loan programs, federal contracting programs, small business classes, and one-on-one business counseling available at no cost.  Learn about available resources and how to access them.

David Walker, Shasta-Cascade SBDC Director, will discuss innovation and its role during COVID-19.  The old saying, “Necessity is the mother of invention” is proving itself true during COVID-19. Companies are being forced to become smarter or be left behind the curve. A few months ago, companies who had no idea what Zoom was have become experts at video conferencing. Restaurants that never considered offering take-out are now delivering to homes.

It is not just in our day-to-day lives where innovation has taken a front seat: government programs that foster commercial innovative ideas are seeing a deluge of proposals. Things are changing – and the change is happening quickly.

 

This program will discuss:

  • The necessity of balancing health and safety with economic activity
  • Overview of innovations in use that allow companies to pivot
  • Innovations on the horizon that will enable us to transform the way we react to COVID
  • Innovations farther away that will result from our reaction to the pandemic
  • Possible innovative market opportunities and
  • Possible long-term effects

 

Q&A will follow.
