The COVID-19 pandemic struck the world with fierceness unprecedented in more than a hundred years. Almost immediately after the outbreak, digital technologies were employed to directly fight the pandemic in manner of tracking the spread if the disease, monitoring the infected people, as well as managing the vaccination process. But, besides the primary global health concerns, there was a secondary impact, i.e. impact on the economy where small businesses and startups appeared to be the most vulnerable. Having this in mind, in this paper, we explore the possibilities of using digital technologies to mitigate the pandemic’s devastating impact on the most fragile economic entities. We compiled largely available digital systems that are immediately usable, affordable and appear to be quite adequate to help small businesses and startups survive the pandemic and even boost their income.
