Encouraging and supporting entrepreneurs is a hot topic in economic development, and I’d like to start a series on it here at Small Biz Survival.
Most of you are involved either in a small business, or in economic development in one form or another, so I’d like to start with you. Do you have an opinion or a story to share? Here’s the kind of thing I’m looking for:
- From towns, cities and other local governments: Specific actions you’ve taken to encourage entrepreneurship,
- From organizations: Programs you’ve carried out, including training, workshops, events, etc., to support entrepreneurship.
- From entrepreneurs: What helped you start your business? Or what could have been done to make things easier for you? Did your town make you feel wanted?
Be sure to tell us about the results you’ve had. Success and failure stories are both welcome, since we can learn from both.
You can comment here, email me, Tweet me, Facebook me… what ever works for you. I want to hear your stories!
