Small businesses are vital to the social and economic vibrancy of our communities. Yet, over 45% of San Francisco’s small businesses remain closed, according to a recent city report.

Join SPUR for a discussion on how we revitalize San Francisco as we begin to come back together as a city and community. Our panel features leaders working to ensure that small businesses throughout the city have a resilient future.

Registration closes on Monday, October 18 at 5 p.m.

+ Lenore Estrada, Executive Director, SF New Deal + Owner of Three Babes Bakeshop
+ Sharky Laguana, President of the San Francisco Small Business Commission, Founder & CEO Bandago and Campago
