How are Small Businesses navigating COVID-19 and federal assistance? What are “the last mile” problems in disbursing government funds to the sector? How can financial technology help small businesses and unemployed workers during the crisis—and once the pandemic subsides?

With so much confusion reigning in the efforts to provide small business financing, Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law, Georgetown Center for Financial Markets and Policy, and CQ Roll Call will be hosting a live streamed virtual town hall with experts and representatives from the business community to brainstorm ideas as to how fintech might help assist in an economic reboot.
