The economic fallout from COVID-19 is pushing America’s small businesses to their limits. More than 1 in 4 small businesses are considering closing and over 40% of Black-owned businesses have permanently closed. While these closures represent a severe blow to the American economy, there is an opportunity here to rebuild these small businesses to be more resilient than ever by doubling down on proven and innovative solutions.
Please join President Bill Clinton, Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga, and a diverse range of problem-solvers who are at the forefront of developing these solutions. By realizing the promise of digital technology, unlocking access to capital, and better integrating small businesses into global supply chains, we have the chance to not only rebuild the backbone of the American economy, but to do so in a way that is more inclusive for all Americans.
President Bill Clinton and Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga will sit down to discuss opportunities to help small businesses in the wake of COVID-19. Following their conversation will be a panel on inclusive recovery for small businesses moderated by President Clinton, which will include Andrea Jung, president and CEO of Grameen America, Wole Coaxum, founder & CEO of MoCaFi and Randall Woodfin, Mayor of Birmingham, Alabama.
Time: 1 PM – 2 PM ET
