About this Event

To support Acadiana's business community – particularly our small businesses – in response to COVID-19, Acadiana resource partners will be hosting a series of webinars on timely and relevant topics. A preliminary set of two webinars will be held on the morning of Tuesday, March 24, and we will assess future webinars to follow.

Part 1: Disaster Loans and Other SBA Resources

Time: 9:30 - 10:00 a.m. CDT

Presenter:

  • Heidi Melancon, Louisiana Small Business Development Center (LSBDC) at UL Lafayette

The U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) Economic Injury Disaster Loans are low-interest loans to small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of COVID-19. Learn more about this program, what qualifies as “economic injury,” how to apply, and when to expect assistance.

Part 2: Getting Your Business Ready to Sell Online

Time: 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. CDT

Presenters:

  • Destin Ortego, Opportunity Machine
  • Tara Guidry, Cajun Crate
  • Anita Begnaud, Downtown Development Authority
  • Stephen Verret, Spoonbill
  • John Petersen, Tula Tacos + Amigos & Central Pizza Table + Bar

Hear from local small business owners who have had success selling online and who have pivoted their operations to go digital, in response to COVID-19 related restrictions on restaurants and other impacts on the retail market.

Notes:

  • You will register the same way for both parts, but can pick and choose when to tune in
  • Due to system limitations, the live webinars will be limited to 100 participants, but both sessions will be recorded and widely shared by partner organizations afterwards
  • We will allow for Q&A but might not have time to take all questions. All questions will be recorded, however, and we will work to provide timely responses
  • If we reach the registration limit before you are able to register, you can access the video online shortly after the webinars end at: oneacadiana.org/covid-19-resources
