Entrepreneur with CT ties helping small businesses navigate the loan process

(WFSB) – A Silicon Valley entrepreneur with ties to Connecticut is trying to help small business owners get the cash they need to survive.

Laura Bilazarian is on top of the world, but don’t let the pretty dress fool you.

She’s tougher than just about all of us.

Laura won a rugby title in college and built a big career on Wall Street, but she still eyed an even greater challenge: starting a small business.

“There’s not a day that’s not really extremely hard,” Bilazarian tells us.

But if you are the kind of person that likes to do hard things that can be satisfying too, Laura created and later sold a highly successful tech company in Silicon Valley and because she just can’t help herself, Laura just started a new small business, but even with all that experience, nothing couldn’t prepare Laura or any other entrepreneur for the coronavirus.
