What small businesses can do to survive coronavirus

While small businesses have taken some strain over the past five years, they have had the ability to work fast and adapt to a no-growth economy, says Aurik Business Accelerator founder Pavlo Phitidis.

With the coronavirus outbreak taking its toll on the economy and business, Phitidis has encouraged entrepreneurs to take on a positive and creative mindset.

He shares advice on what you can do to prevent your business from sinking.

You have got to snap out of it and the best way to do that is to start acting in a way to survive and thrive and hold your business together.... the moment you act, you see what's working, you see what's not, do more of what's working and stop doing the things that aren't working.

Pavlo Phitidis, Founder - Business Accelerator

The first thing we have got to all focus on is you have got to get money in.

Pavlo Phitidis, Founder - Business Accelerator
