SBA/Agility Webinar: What Are the Top Five Disaster Risks to Small Businesses?

For some reason, the building where you run your business was hit with a power outage, and you’re forced to shut down for several days. Your customers wonder why your doors are closed, and they decide to spend their money elsewhere. It’s even worse if you run a business like a florist shop or a restaurant, because you’ll lose much of your expensive inventory thanks to the power outage.

Small business losses more often are the result of small, isolated incidents. Assessing your company’s risks, and becoming more aware of those hidden threats, is one of the first steps in creating an effective business continuity plan.
Join Agility Recovery and the U.S. Small Business Administration on Tuesday, July 14, at 2 p.m. EDT for an online discussion on the top five small business disaster risks, and how to protect your assets before a crisis hits.

The SBA has partnered with Agility Recovery to offer disaster preparedness strategies through its “PrepareMyBusiness” website. 

Visit www.preparemybusiness.org to access past webinars.

The SBA provides disaster recovery assistance in the form of low-interest loans to homeowners, renters, private nonprofits and businesses of all sizes. To learn more, visit www.sba.gov/disaster.

WHAT:          “The Top Five Risks for Business Disasters in America”– Disaster preparedness tips from Agility Recovery, followed by a Q&A session.

                      WHEN:          Tuesday, July 14, 2015 – 2 to 3 p.m. EDT

                       HOW:             Space is limited. Register at http://agil.me/sbatop5
