Orientación de Reapertura y Actualizaciones del PPP para Empresas Pequeñas el jueves 25 de junio

Dear Business Owner, Manager, Representative:

 

When your business begins to re-open, it won’t be business as usual. This Spanish-language webinar will guide attendees through new factors they will need to consider for re-opening safely and responsibly. Businesses – including non-profit organizations, independent contractors, and sole proprietors impacted by COVID-19 – are invited to join an interactive virtual workshop at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 25, 2020. Participants will learn about   best practices in accordance with the  Resilience Roadmap  outlined by the State of California and receive updates on the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which is a loan program designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. This workshop is hosted by the City of San Jose in partnership with Latino Business Foundation SV,  BusinessOwnerSpace.com  partners, and others. To RSVP, visit  https://bit.ly/SS-RSVP-0625 . To watch the previous events, visit  https://bit.ly/OEDSJ .

We used to conduct paper surveys to collect data in rural areas with limited internet connectivity. Thanks to QuestionPro's offline mobile app, collecting offline data is a piece of cake now, especially when you don't have to deal with paperwork anymore..
