Even though the government's Payment Protection Program (PPP) was a life saver to many, many businesses nationwide, controversy still swirls about this lending initiative -- especially when it comes to forgiveness requirements. Now that rounds one and two are firmly etched in the rearview mirror, it may be time to get creative and think beyond PPP.
Artis Technologies CEO/Co-founder Barclay Keith came on the show to share his insights on how credit unions can help businesses post-PPP. Here's what we asked him:
How can credit unions help businesses post-PPP?
Why do credit unions need to start thinking outside of PPP loans and traditional banking services to help small businesses?
Why is a business becoming the "face of consumer financing" good news for credit unions?
Can you talk to us about how the next wave of innovation should be geared toward modernizing consumer financing to stimulate demand for local businesses' products and services?
Can you expand on this downstream credit approach and why it is what the economy needs to drive demand for local businesses' goods and services?
Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
