Strategies for Resiliency: Supporting Asian American and Pacific Islander Small Business Owners

Register today for this free webinar »


May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month—a time to celebrate and honor the contributions of AAPI-owned small businesses—but due to the COVID-19 pandemic many AAPI-owned small businesses and self-employed people are struggling to access critical resources and facts about funding to keep their businesses afloat right now. These issues can be particularly challenging for businesses with slim profit margins, and an owner’s language skills and immigration status can often impact access to financing.

Please join the office of Senator Tammy Duckworth, Congresswoman Judy Chu (CA-27), Small Business Majority and National CAPACD for a free interactive webinar for both small business owners and entrepreneurship service organizations on financial resiliency tactics to address the needs of AAPI small businesses.

Topics include:

  • Policy updates impacting AAPI businesses during COVID-19
  • Overview of federal aid for small business owners
  • Funding options and how to avoid predatory lending
  • Negotiation with creditors for financial resilience
  • Helpful tools and resources by Venturize, National CAPACD and more

Special Remarks By:

Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL)
United States Senate
Member, Senate Committee on Small Business & Entrepreneurship

Congresswoman Judy Chu
Representative from CA 27th District
United States House of Representatives
Member, House  Committee on Small Business

Brought to you by: Small Business Majority, National CAPACD, Asian Pacific Islander Small Business Program, Leaders Forum, Entrepinayship and Asian American Executive Network.
