Today, as our society and regional economy are changing rapidly due to the pandemic, we want to be able to assist in how we innovate, how we work, and ultimately how we approach life. The challenges we are facing a multifaceted including with free enterprise, entrepreneurship, diversity and talent, healthcare, infrastructure, and innovation, to name a few.
A year ago, we reached out to you to find out how we could best support you in the early stages of the pandemic. Based upon your feedback we were successful in launching a number of initiatives including:
- A website portal with a variety of resources to assist you and pivot during the pandemic;
- 20 educational webinars about topics ranging from tax credits to PPP to protecting your employees and customers as you prepare to reopen;
- Advocating for the PPP program and other financial assistance for industries most in need;
- Creating a Reopening Guide Toolkit with public health guidance for businesses safely reopening;
- Launching Operation Meal Plan in partnership with Cobb Community Foundation to help restaurants keep workers employed and provide non-profits with meals;
- Launching Cobb Shops to Go to help drive demand to your business during the shut downs;
- Launching Cobbhires.com to help you find the talent you need to reopen; and
- Working with the county to distribute $50M in small business grants.
We are inviting you to participate with us again on a survey that will collect your insight and feedback to help us plan for the next stage of the recovery and help us get our economy prospering for all businesses. We encourage you to take your time, be creative and help us preserve and foster a strong business climate well into the future.
