COVID-19 has impacted our economy and business owners in unprecedented ways. As evidenced by our front line PPE supply distribution, countless engagement surveys and responsive video webinars on topics such as opportunities to do business with Bexar County and funding, the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Department pledges to you, our local business owners and heroes, to remain adaptive and increasingly attuned to your needs in this challenging time.

I encourage you to browse our website and subscribe to our SMWBE social media channels like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.  Follow our #SMWBE hashtag and stay up to date with training, networking events, and the Bexar County SMWBE Calendar which is updated with events from Bexar County offices, resource partners, Chambers of Commerce, and more!  Get connected with us to discover opportunities to expand your business, make new connections, and identify resources to help you to start or accelerate your business.

As we continue to work together to rebuild and rebound I ask that you, please, take time to engage this office, review our content and stay apprised of Bexar County's ongoing efforts to combat these economic challenges not merely as your government but as your partner in the recovery effort.
