Spruce Root's Business Needs Survey
Spruce Root has created a COVID-19 Business Needs Survey for Southeast Alaska. The purpose of the survey is to better identify what financial resources Southeast Alaskan businesses need. We hope to use this information to create an emergency financial product that can assist as quickly as possible. We are happy to partner with other economic development organizations, technical assistance providers, lenders and government agencies on the response effort to flatten not just the health curve of the crisis, but the economic one too.
Please share this survey with all of the Southeast Alaskan businesses in your network: a few minutes of your time connecting and encouraging survey results will enable us all to better identify the needs and to craft targeted solutions to the problem. We have already had over 100 responses and would love to have more representation from rural businesses.
(Spruce Root provides local entrepreneurs with access to business development and financial resources in the form of loan capital, business coaching, workshops, competitions.
