‘The MBC is heartbroken by the senseless murder of George Floyd and so many other African Americans whose lives have been cut short due to police brutality. As Dr. King stated, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”. Their lives mattered. Black Lives Matter.’

🔵News and Updates🔵

Today, Councilman Aaron Rouse hosted a Small Business Panel Q&A. Councilman Rouse asked questions about the SBA small business loan program, what it entails, what information the SBA will need to process those loans, and what other resources the city can provide small businesses.

Councilman Aaron Rouse, who is a part of the Virginia Beach City Council, had a panel of three individuals:

Taylor Adams, Director, Virginia Beach Economic Development

Erica Small-Sisco, Program Director, ODU Women’s Business Center

Tasha Saunders, ODU Women’s Business Center

Click here to go to the Councilman's page to view the second and first live videos, in that order, to view the Small Business Q&A.

Ms. Erica Small-Sisco, in partnership with Taylor Adams, will be hosting counseling sessions by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10 am to 2 pm, at the Economic Development building in Town Center of Virginia Beach.

The address for the Department of Economic Development is 4525 Main St #700, Virginia Beach, VA 23462.

The Department of Economic Development has also worked together in partnership with the Women's Business Center to create a place for COVID-19 Business Resources.

Councilman Aaron Rouse

In order to get through these tough times, we have to work together. We have to start thinking out-of-the-box and find innovative ways to press on.

Virginia Beach Economic Development is partnering with the ODU Women’s Business Center to provide no-cost technical assistance to small business owners that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and want to apply for federal relief. These services will be available by appointment on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 2pm until June 3.

I will be holding a Small Business Q&A on Facebook Live next Monday at 11am with the people who have put together this program for our city’s business owners - you can submit your questions in the comments below.

Let me be clear, this is only one piece of the puzzle. We will continue to work together to get through this!

Today's meeting has been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience.
