B2B Digital Design Services is the flagship project of the COVID-19 Support Program. It will provide funding for creative and design service businesses to work with WWBC clients on professional photography, videography, graphic design, and website development. WWBC clients will be matched with local or regional small business vendors to create all the necessary elements required to enhance their existing online presence or develop a new e-commerce website.
Marketing Outreach and Crowdfunding
With the support of one-on-one counseling, clients can utilize marketing strategy and crowdfunding best practices from industry experts to raise capital for improvement projects, product launches, and other innovations in the face of COVID-19’s impact. Clients will receive free software access and marketing support to launch campaigns that raise money for their business in coordination with The Local Crowd®, a Wyoming based online crowdfunding platform.
The importance of maintaining accurate financials has intensified for small businesses as they cope with reduced income while trying to secure lines of credit, federal loans, and financial assistance. The Covid-19 Support program will provide WWBC clients with access to QuickBooks® online software for one-year to qualifying clients. WWBC will also provide free one-on-one counseling to help women-owned businesses master the software and learn bookkeeping best practices.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
COVID-19 Support Program
If my business is not woman-owned, will I qualify to participate in these programs?
Yes. WWBC does not discriminate.
Does my business need to be women-owned certified to participate in these programs?
No. WWBC does not discriminate and we do not require any certifications to receive program support and training.
Can my business participate in these programs if I operate my business outside Wyoming?
No. All businesses participating must be registered to operate in the state of Wyoming.
If I own two businesses, can I receive help for both?
If you own two businesses (i.e. you have two EIN numbers), you will need to fill out two SBA 641 forms (make sure to put the business names). This enables you to receive support for each business.
If I have applied for EIDL or the PPP loan, will I have to report this? Will these resources have an effect on getting approved for an SBA loan?
No. WWBC services are funded by a SBA grant. The grant funding awarded to WWBC is not connected to the EIDL or PPP loans or programs and there is no reporting required from WWBC clients.
