It’s an uncertain time we’re living in, Mavens. We hear you, we feel you, and we’re standing alongside you as we all navigate a strange new world thanks to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Indy Maven was founded on a sense of community and never have we all needed each other more than we do in this moment—even as we must physically distance ourselves from one another. We know your businesses, your careers, your families, and your futures have all been thrown into disarray and we want to do all we can to help you—and ask for your support in return.
To that end, we’ve put together a number of resource guides across categories like health and fitness, retail, restaurants, and more to showcase how members of our community are managing this new normal and offer ways we can support their endeavors. This page will serve as a table of contents with links to separate stories of interest which we hope you will find useful and share with your own networks.
We will continue to post updates here (and in the individual stories) as new information becomes available. If you have something to share, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can count on Indy Maven to be here with all kinds of content—from highly informative to the hopefully entertaining—while you’re stuck at home living that socially distanced life. While there may be anxiety-filled days ahead, we have faith in you and this community that we will come out the other side stronger and more grateful for each other than ever.
For all of our small business owner friends, we’re sure many of you saw this message from Mayor Joe Hogsett, but just in case, we wanted to drop it in here.
“The federal government has allocated $50 billion to the Small Business Administration (SBA) for Economic Injury Disaster Loans. In order for Hoosiers to gain access to this funding, the State of Indiana (@GovHolcomb and @Indiana_EDC) needs to collect small business economic impact data from every county in Indiana,” Hogsett tweeted. “That means — we need your help! If you know of an entrepreneur or small business that has been or anticipates being impacted by the coronavirus, please ask them to complete this form: . Information obtained from this form will ONLY be used to assist in requesting an economic injury disaster declaration from isbdc.org/indianacovid19@SBAgov and identifying greatest areas of need.”
We want to make sure you have access to all possible resources to help your business survive this trying time.
Below are links to category-specific guides to local businesses and services available to you during this pandemic. Read, share, and shop where you can!
