Today, brands are being challenged like never before. Consumers are exercising their spending power, supporting or withdrawing from brands, not only based on the quality of their products and services, but on how they are made and provided, and on their track record of social responsibility. Many brands are re-examining how they do business and rethinking their brand stories.
What is your brand’s story?
Is it connecting with your audience?
Is it leading to sales?
In this webinar hosted by the Pace University Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Margaret Kim, Adjunct Professor at Pace University's Lubin School of Business, will outline the elements and process of brand story development and how to craft and tell compelling, authentic stories that connect with your audience and lead to sales.

While the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program have benefitted thousands of New York small businesses, the US Small Business Administration (SBA) also manages a targeted debt relief program to help entrepreneurs build and launch a business venture. Specifically, under the 7(a), 504 and Microloan Debt Relief program, the SBA will pay the first six months of principal and interest for small businesses who apply for and receive a new 7(a), 504 or Microloan through September 30, 2021, capped at $9,000 per borrower per month.
Join the Pace University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and learn more about how these “non-disaster” SBA Loans can help support your business venture post COVID-19. The session will feature small business lenders who actively lend funds through these programs and will be moderated by Beth Goldberg, District Director of the SBA’s New York District Office.
