Tech Forward Webcast: Digital Resiliency and Community Revival in Georgia
The Connected Commerce Council (3C) is pleased to host the Greater Savannah Black Chamber of Commerce and the Savannah Chamber of Commerce for a webinar to discuss the importance of technology platforms and digital tools for empowering minority-owned Georgia businesses, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The event will highlight the value of technology investments in further situating Georgia as a nationwide leader in innovation, while also focusing on the importance of digital platforms in empowering small businesses – particularly those operated by Black business owners.
Following keynote remarks from Savannah Mayor Van Johnson, the conversation will cover the innovation driving growth and recovery in the Savannah area, the digital infrastructure supporting the region’s small business community, and the current legislative environment surrounding tech.
The significance of digital tools amidst the pandemic has been underscored by a recent study confirming the existence of a “Digital Safety Net” that has enabled many small businesses to survive and recover from the economic impact of COVID-19 – in some cases, becoming stronger and more agile in the process.
This event is open to the public.
Date: Tuesday, June 29, 2021
Time: Noon – 1:00pm ET
