The panelists will share insights and information about programs and resources that are available to business owners, including the important role the SBA plays in helping small businesses succeed. In fact, 80% of small business owners said they have used at least one SBA program, and the top request for government help is to make it easier to get loans, according to a new Intuit QuickBooks Success Month 2022 survey released today.

  • Isabella Casillas Guzman , Administrator, U.S. Small Business Administration
  • Alex Chriss, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Intuit Small Business and Self Employed Group, home of QuickBooks and Mailchimp
  • Moderator: Lisa Ling , Emmy award-winning journalist

WHY: Small businesses continue to say getting access to capital is one of their top three challenges and "making it easier to get loans" is where they want the most help from government programs. Moreover, rising costs are now the number-one threat small businesses face with 89% of small businesses concerned about inflation, according to a recent QuickBooks survey . Cash flow problems also continue to hurt small businesses, forcing entrepreneurs to use cash reserves and even credit cards to plug the gap.
