BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) — There's an upcoming event designed to help small businesses here in Western New York.

It's called Change the Game.

It's a virtual event to provide resources and information about funding, and one-on-one coaching for small businesses.

A key focus of the program will focus on financial management.

Wahaira Zapata, a business development officer for Capital Connect NY, said, "We know a lot of small busineses have struggled because of COVID. So we basically have funds anywhere from 500 to half a million dollars, and those come in the form of loans and grants."
