From curbside pickup in Detroit and Kansas City, to cocktails-to-go in Denver and NYC, neighborhood small businesses have had to get creative to navigate these last 2 months of sheltering in place. And in the face of possibly losing their favorite local restaurants and mom and pop shops, communities have rallied together to support their favorite businesses with gift card purchases, Takeout Tuesdays and GoFundMe pages.

But as states begin to re-open, neighborhood businesses will need even more support and ongoing resources to get back on their feet.

In interviews on Wednesday, June 17, Tatyana Mamut, Head of Product at Nextdoor, the leading online platform for neighborhoods, will discuss how vital local businesses are to thriving neighborhoods. As a successful product developer, and entrepreneur at heart, Tatyana understands what businesses will need to get back on their feet as we head into the new normal.

She’ll walk viewers through Nextdoor’s new free tools designed to help business owners reach their neighbors and most loyal customers directly, allowing them to share their most current information like updates to hours, products, services and operations. She’ll also share tips on how communities can help them keep their doors open by staying connected.
