Watch our roundtable with Utah small businesses:
Utah SMBs reported the best revenue outcomes of any state (-5% vs. -16 avg.).
Businesses with advanced use of digital technology expected 4x less revenue loss during the pandemic.
Policymakers should prioritize the creation of and incentivize small business participation in a new era of national and local public–private partnerships focused on overcoming common access and education barriers that many small businesses face, particularly during challenging times.
Without access to capital, small businesses cannot stay open, much less innovate. This is even more evident during a crisis. Many small businesses need access to new forms of capital and inexpensive services to bridge the gap in these situations. Policymakers should consider funding new forms of small business grants or loans and expanding national support networks. They should also be mindful of small businesses led by members of underserved groups.
Ask Utah elected officials to put small business recovery first.
Now is not the time to limit the digital tools and online services small businesses are using to survive the COVID-19 crisis.
