Small Business Week: Give small businesses the banking services they deserve.


Upcoming webinar with Aite, Capital One Spark Business & Digital Forward Business

Every year, the U.S. Small Business Administration hosts National Small Business Week to highlight the outstanding work of small businesses. Running a small or mid-sized business is a big job and one that impacts the health of our economy and communities. Yet, small business owners continue to struggle finding financial management tools that meet their unique needs. Banks looking to deepen their relationships with their business customers have the opportunity to be the partner small and medium businesses deserve and deliver the tools they need to manage their financial operations. 

Join us for a special webinar on Thursday, June 8 from 11-12 p.m. PT/2-3 p.m. ET to hear the challenges owners face and how banks are creating new solutions to build meaningful partnerships with businesses.

The discussion will feature Christine Barry, Aite Group’s Research Director for Wholesale Banking, Andrea Raj, Senior Business Manager for Capital One® Spark Business®, and Andy Ciordia, of The Secret Chocolatier, a successful tech savvy business owner grappling with limited resources, lots of growth, and a penchant for chocolate.

We will explore implications of new Aite Group research to answer the following questions:

  • With only about 10% of payments made through bank bill pay, what is holding SMBs back from active usage of existing digital tools like traditional online bill pay?
  • How are banks thinking through new strategies to grow and strengthen SMB customer relationships as sales models and distribution channels evolve?
  • How can attitudes and behaviors of millennials and digital-centric customers light the way, to help your bank anticipate future customer demand for innovative products, and “skate to where the puck is going to be, not to where it has been?” (Wayne Gretzky)
