PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Months into the coronavirus pandemic, the road to economic recovery is a steep one for small business owners in the area.
KDKA investigator Meghan Schiller explains the untapped resources that could act as a lifeline for some businesses in the coming weeks.
“We’ve talked to about 15 businesses that have come in specifically asking us, gee we really need to think about this,” said Rich Longo, the director of the Duquesne University Small Business Development Center
Longo knows businesses are considering bankruptcy. That’s why the Duquesne University Small Business Development Center wants to help.
“That was enough for us to say if there’s 15, we kind of see the writing on the wall, we kind of see there’s a stall in the second wave of stimulus,” said Longo.
His group of experienced consultants wants business owners to weigh all the options before going under.
