During the Axios live "The Pandemic Pivot: Small Business Recovery" event, Axios cities correspondent Kim Hart interviewed Madison Black Chamber of Commerce president Camille Carter. Carter responded to the recent McKinsey projection report showing that up to 34 percent of Wisconsin employer small businesses could close permanently through the first four months, including through July, due to the pandemic. "I think that we are really in alignment with those statistics and percentages," Carter said and added that small business owners within her network are working to rebuild but a number have closed their doors. Carter also addressed the impact of the George Floyd protests on their business community. "This is a time for awakening on every level, so what we're finding as a chamber is that we're needing to depend on one another and become engaged."
