Thursday, June 24, 2021


Join the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) for an online panel discussion with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender-owned small businesses as they share their small business stories and how they utilized SBA’s economic aid to pivot during the pandemic. You will also learn about the SBA resources available to help entrepreneurs compete in the marketplace: launch or expand businesses; receive counseling; funding opportunities; and help to recover or rebuild from disasters.

The event will be moderated by Julie Verratti, Associate Administrator for the SBA’s Office of Field Operations. In addition, there will be participation from Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI).

Panelists include:
  • Christopher Diebel, Owner, Bubba Southern Comforts, Des Moines, IA
  • John Pepe, Co-Owner, Chez Est, Hartford, CT
  • Tina Reynolds, President, Uptown Studios, Sacramento, CA
  • Kelly Wilson, Owner/Co-founder, Weave Gotcha Covered, Kansas City, MO
