Claire Chang let me know via Plancast (www.plancast.com) earlier today about a “series of events, to be kicked-off in Silicon Valley, designed to raise awareness of the [Obama] Administration’s efforts to create economic opportunities for entrepreneurs and small businesses to drive economic growth.”
White House Initiative Summit on Entrepreneurship & Economic Growth
Mountain View, California • Friday, January 7, 2011, 8:30am-5:30pm
Here is her full post and we are eager to hear from Obama’s folks to see if they are actually trying to help us grow our business here.
Asian Americans play a key role in driving entrepreneurship and small business growth in communities across the U.S. This series of events, to be kicked-off in Silicon Valley, is designed to raise awareness of the Administration’s efforts to create economic opportunities for entrepreneurs and small businesses to drive economic growth.
The Summit will feature Senior Obama Administration officials from the Department of Commerce, Small Business Administration, and White House National Economic Council. It will provide an opportunity for participants to provide input on how the government can more effectively serve the entrepreneur and small business community.
Secretary Gary Locke will provide the Keynote, followed by a series of informational workshops on financing, procurement, and growing businesses through exports, featuring senior Administration officials and entrepreneurs from the community. The Summit will include networking opportunities to meet with members of the Administration. The Summit is free to attend.
Pre-event registration is required. Space is limited and will fill up quickly. Register Now:
