Did you know 96% of all 30 million US companies have fewer than 10 employees?
From builders to brokers, convenience shops to consultants, millions of small businesses are adopting a new breed of online tools to help them compete toe to toe with global brands. Join Prescott Watson, investment analyst at OurCrowd, and Kirk Simpson, co-founder and CEO of Wave, on this 45-minute webinar for an early look at startups dedicated to boosting small business.
Revenge of Main Street: How small businesses compete – and succeed – in the era of Amazon
Monday, July 27th (10:00 PM Israel / 3:00 PM NYC / 12:00 PM San Francisco)
In this webinar, we will explore:
- Logistics: We all appreciate Amazon, but can’t deny it has derailed retailers of all sizes. New tools help small business compete via supply chain and delivery, in ways, only a year ago, were unthinkable.
- Branding & advertising: Social and search supplied small business a new way to find their audience – but that’s just the beginning. The next generation of marketing tech startups are bringing the tools of the Fortune 500 to Main Street, helping small businesses engage their bases in new ways.
- Back office: In 2015 well over 40% of small businesses are on pen, paper, and Excel. Learn why that’s not going to be the case for long – hear about a startup onboarding over 10,000 firms to accounting, payment processing, and payroll software a week.
- Financing: That banks are not lending to small enterprises is well-known, and a nightmare for long term economic growth. Surprisingly, solutions might be more tech than policy. Your next line of capital may well come from Silicon Valley, not Wall Street.
Looking forward to your participation on the webinar,
