- Organization founded to help business owners during Covid-19 crisis
Small business owners have been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic. Tens of Millions of businesses in India, UK, Mexico, the US and around the world have struggled with little income being generated due to stay-at-home orders from governments to stop the spread of the disease. The good news is there is small business help available online and one ingenious platform, Small Biz Heroes, was recently launched to connect owners with professional support for free.
Founded by entrepreneur Brandon Youra, Small Biz Heroes was started out of necessity with the brand’s creator taking to Instagram to offer free insight, strategy, and help to those in need. After seeing fellow entrepreneurs struggle financially after the spread of Covid-19 to North America, Youra wanted to help and launched Small Biz Heroes on Instagram to connect people.
“Small Biz Heroes was created in response to the global health crisis caused by COVID-19,” Youra said. “Small businesses around the globe are at risk of permanently shutting down within a few months. Now, more than ever, we must come together as a global community to help small businesses in need. We accomplish this by connecting a “small biz” who requires support with skilled professionals that can provide their specified services for free.”
The website is under construction but until then, Youra is connecting small business owners with professional support through the brand’s Instagram page. According to Youra, the organization’s goal is to connect small businesses with ‘heroes’ who can help them navigate the tricky waters of surviving and thriving during and after a pandemic.
Youra has already published live content on Instagram through the @SmallBizHeroes handle allowing viewers to gain insight on a variety of topics. Live videos on Instagram have included discussions on content creation, business re-opening consultations, and a chance for small businesses to share their stories from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Those who have signed up and received help through the official Instagram page from India, the UK, and USA, have called the new platform one of the most important business tools available. Some have credited the platform for helping them to see a future, while others have said, the new platform could stop millions of small business owners losing their business.
In a matter of weeks, Small Biz Heroes amassed more than 8,000 followers on Instagram through word of mouth and social media. The website is set to fully launch shortly and small business help will be even more readily available once it does. According to Youra, it will also be easier for small business owners to connect with helpful heroes when the website is fully operational.
