Covid-19 for SMEs
We’ve created this separate page on our website to house the information we are unearthing that might be of help to small businesses during the Covid-19 emergency. Because things are moving so quickly, information is only emerging slowly as programmes and governance and distribution channels take time to develop. As soon as we hear about new information we will post it.
We’d love your feedback – what’s working out there, what’s not, what are you doing to spare your business and your employees and yourself from economic worry. This is a time for the SMME community to come together. Let’s support each other.
We are also posting here, as well as on the media page, the interviews we’ve been doing to highlight the pressing needs of small businesses. We hope everyone is listening!
Stay safe, stay healthy. Stay in touch.
