Fast Facts:

  • Small, minority, and women-owned businesses are invited to participate in an online discussion on the impacts of COVID-19 on their Durham companies. 


  • Attendees will connect with City and County staff, staff from The Institute, and engage with other business owners to collectively develop solutions that increase the likelihood of not only surviving, but enhancing operations during these unprecedented times. As businesses adjust to the changing landscape and reassess current business models, this discussion will also help facilitate how to begin formulating sustainable strategies to move companies forward.


  • As City and County staff explore solutions to support small, minority and women-owned firms, they are also seeking business owner input during this online discussion to create more comprehensive approaches that specifically address the needs of Durham’s small business community.
