Don't Panic, Let's Talk!


Join NY Tech Alliance and Grasshopper Bank as we provide a safe-space to share your biggest concerns and talk through some of your deepest issues during this time of crisis.

At this edition of Don't Panic, Let's Talk, we will be leading the conversation around navigating the CARES Act. As many of us start the application process to unlock the funds from these programs, many questions are beginning to surface.

Designed to be an interactive session, we are ready to hear from you about the issues you are encountering and work together to identify resources to support you.

Be sure to bring your questions and any recommendations and resources you are finding useful.

This event will be limited to 50 people. Be sure to sign up fast!
