On Wednesday August 5, Axios co-founder Mike Allen and “Axios Today” host Niala Boodhoo hosted the last of a six-event series on how small businesses have pivoted during the coronavirus outbreak. This latest segment featured Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.), and Andrea Stern owner of Satori Yoga studio and Curvy Bride owner Michelle Files.

Axios co-founder and CEO Jim VandeHei hosted a View from the Top segment with CEO of the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council Karen Kerrigan, who discussed trends in how small businesses have adjusted to the new economy:

“[Small businesses] are massively moving to technology platforms. 51% said that they’ve upped their use of social media in order to engage with customers and find new customers. So they really embrace technology at this very critical time, which is helping them to survive the COVID-19 economy.”
