Harvard MBA Students Offer Free Advice on Getting PPP Loans
FinGig has helped over 400 small businesses receive government money with over $ 130 billion in federal funding yet to be earned.
CHARLOTTE, NC – For several months now, thousands of independent small business owners have been wondering how they are going to be able to stay afloat financially during the coronavirus pandemic.
Now, thanks to FinGig, a pair of Harvard MBA students are offering step-by-step help to successfully lead small business owners through the PPP, Paycheck Program Program application process.
Chrys Nikopoulos and Shrey Kapoor are classmates and co-founders of FinGig, a go-to resource for self-employed people to fully understand the government money they need and need.
“We not only make it accessible, but we help with awareness,” Nikopoulos said.
Through direct phone communication, FinGig’s team of volunteers strives to guide you step by step in securing the government assistance loans available to small business owners. Help is completely free. President Trump recently enacted an extension beyond the original June 30 deadline to apply for this federal funding.
“We realized that independent contractors and small businesses are disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic as they are more likely to be on the front lines with jobs like uber drivers, restaurant owners and hairdressers. “said Kapoor.
So far, FinGig has helped over 400 small businesses get a PPP. The group tells WCNC Charlotte that there is still more than $ 130 billion in federal funding available to help.
“We are trying to help as many people as possible,” Nikopoulos said. “There are a lot of small businesses that need help and it’s the least we can do.
