In these uncertain times, businesses across the board have had to rethink their short-term and long-term strategies to cope with the new realities where minimal, or even zero revenue, has become the norm for the unforeseeable future. In such a situation, the most vulnerable are the small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), whose regular channels of credit that keep their operations afloat have dried up as creditors refuse to lend until the arrival of better news. To help SMBs power through these difficult circumstances, SMBStory will host a special WhatsApp chat series, powered by AWS, where leaders from various sectors like BFSI, e-commerce, retail, and more, will provide guidance on reworking sales forecasts, managing revenue, cash flow slumps and supply chain disruptions, among other topics, to help SMBs navigate through these difficult times.
