The 2020 Nevada SBDC’s Annual Report is here!
In March of 2020, Nevada small businesses faced an almost impossible challenge: the COVID-19 pandemic! Nevada’s economy is supported by over 283,000 small businesses (U.S. SBA, 2020), many of which support the critically important tourism and gaming industries. It was during the pandemic that Nevada saw the highest state unemployment rate in the history of our nation, at over 28%. Nevada businesses were, and still are, some of the hardest hit in the nation, and the shutdown and continued limited operations have been devastating to our small businesses and the State’s revenues. Most of us have never faced balancing the health of our economy with the health of our people.
In 2020, the Nevada SBDC stepped up
to help these small businesses during a critical survival period with ideas for Rescue, tools for Recovery, and, finally, opportunity for Renewal.
