The Illinois Small Business Development & International Trade Center developed a resource that should be very helpful to small businesses looking for solutions during this trying time with Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Small Business Survival Guide has 6 sections that are packed with information and resources:

  1. Reducing spread of the virus
  2. Helping your people
  3. Complying with federal, state and local guidelines
  4. Calculating economic injury
  5. Securing operating capital
  6. Leveraging local expertise

The good news is that there seems to be a lot of information going around to help business owners. The challenge is that it does not all reside in one easy to access location, and our goal is to provide everyone with that resource. Please click this link to access the guide.
