Small Business Forum

December 4, 2013
Washington, DC

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.
