Small business owners have taken the initiative to adapt their operations to be more accessible and safe in order to stay in business. It took brainstorming and resiliency to implement changes under the circumstances of a global health crisis. Creativity is the necessary skill that helps small businesses plan, pivot, sustain, and manage operations to operate at their full potential.
“This partnership between the Creativity Lab and SBDC allows small businesses affected by COVID-19 to access additional resources within UVI. The collaboration between the SBDC and UVI Creativity Lab is part of the opportunity to utilize CARES ACT funding to cover the expenses for small businesses who utilize the UVI Creativity Lab program through the VI SBDC,” said Ted Gutierrez, VI SBDC state director.
