Verizon Small Business Digital Ready: Tailored to Your Needs Anytime, Anywhere

Grand Rapids Area Black Businesses leader Jamiel Robinson talked with StartupNation CEO Jeff Sloan about how the Verizon Small Business Digital Ready program helps people move forward in their entrepreneurial journey.

How VSBDR can help: Some of the needs, especially when it comes to small businesses on the technical assistance side, is help with financial statements. So we know that with the pandemic a lot of businesses, when it came to applying for assistance, whether that was relief grants or other kinds of relief loans, a lot of that required a lot of financial documents. Especially when we talk about small businesses of color, it didn’t necessarily have all of those documents. And so they missed out on a lot of the relief funding because they didn’t necessarily have all the paperwork in order.
