Small Business Forum

Washington, District of Columbia / December 4, 2013

The Atlantic's Small Business Forum featured a morning of panel discussions, keynotes, and entrepreneur case studies focusing on stimulating prosperity in the small business community.

Successful new enterprises are the engine of job growth, but aspiring entrepreneurs face a host of challenges in today’s economic and political landscape. On December 4, 2013, The Atlantic hosted its third annual Small Business Forum to explore new strategies for removing red tape and enabling small business success.

Combining policy discussions on tax reform, health care law, and access to capital with the on-the-ground perspectives of several successful entrepreneurs, the Forum identified the most promising opportunities to strengthen and maintain a vibrant small business sector.
