    30 Minutes with: Annie Blake-Burke

    The Downtown Spokane Partnership is proud to present “30 Minutes With:”, a recurring series of virtual, 30-minute question and answer sessions with local industry experts on the most pressing topics of the day. Sessions are hosted on Zoom, and free to attend.

    Annie Blake-Burke, a Communications Account Director at DH, will be sharing information about The Small Business Flex Fund -  a new simple, low interest, and flexible recovery loan program for Washington’s smallest businesses and non profits.

    The pandemic has been especially hard on Washington’s smallest businesses and nonprofits. The Small Business Flex Fund, supported by the Washington State Department of Commerce, is designed to help small business owners and non profits access funds at a competitive interest rate, so they can bounce back stronger than ever.

    With the Small Business Flex Fund, business owners will experience low interest rates, longer payback timelines, and community-based lenders with decades of experience helping Washington’s small businesses and nonprofits thrive.

    Join us to learn more about what businesses and organizations are eligible for loans of up to $150,000, ask questions about the details of this program, or how to complete the pre-application to get matched with a lender.
