2020 has been a year that everyone would like to forget. But, hard to do so considering all that has taken place.
The Covid Pandemic has put a big strain on the economy and has caused thousands of small businesses to close doors.
Since the start of the pandemic, thousands of businesses have been put on hold, many have closed but many have evolved and shifted business to accommodate the new norm.
Restaurants are starting more take out; partnering with food delivery companies.
Funeral homes are staring virtual funerals 😬
Gyms started offering virtual training…etc
But it’s hard to evolve. Considering the many brick and mortar businesses, some that have been around for 10+ years – it’s not easy to just up and leave, or change the business model.
To help, the Ontario government has allowed in for small business grants and other forms of funding to help and support the entrepreneurship.
While they allowed for some wage subsidies, some rent support..etc; the big funding is still open – and most people are missing out.
