SCORE Chester and Delaware County Offers 12 Ideas to Help Small Businesses Cope in This Crisis
The coronavirus pandemic is an unprecedented challenge for small business owners, who are hurting financially, worried and confused about what options they may have.
Closing their business is not just a financial concern for them as they see a complete loss of revenue. The owners also want to do the right thing for their employees, who can’t pay their bills without jobs.
SCORE Chester and Delaware County, which offers mentoring and practical advice to new and current business owners alike, has seen a large increase from the business community in requests for their services and questions about the right strategy to follow.
“Since March 24, we have hosted over 2,400 small business owners on daily webinars with the SBA,” says John Hess, chairman of SCORE Chester and Delaware Counties. “We have seen a 35 percent increase in clients seeking services and a 45 percent in the number of mentoring sessions.
“These are not just numbers to us. It shows us that there is a need in the small business community, and we have a calling to help our community in this time of need,” Hess says.
