The COVID pandemic is accelerating changes that were already underway in the US, and altering the way we live, learn and work. As we all begin to focus on rebuilding local and state economies, technology will play an even bigger role in providing more opportunities for everyone - whether building a small business or looking for a new career. Digital tools are helping American small businesses and job seekers mitigate the negative effects of COVID-19, and even enable a faster, stronger recovery. In fact, a recent study by the Connected Commerce Council, in partnership with Google, found that more digitally prepared businesses anticipated 4X better revenue for 2020 compared to the less prepared ones.
We invite you to a webinar specifically for state and local elected officials (and staff) to learn more about the Grow with Google program, and resources for local small businesses and job seekers in your communities. We’ll also hear from the Connected Commerce Council on their research, Digitally Driven, which offers small businesses, policymakers and the technology industry recommendations on how to expand the Digital Safety Net and increase digital resilience for small businesses.
