SBA lets small busi­ness tell their sto­ries on­line

The Covington News - - Business - STAFF RE­PORTS news@cov­

Ev­ery­one has a story, and now the U.S. Small Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion is giv­ing en­trepreneurs a new on­line plat­form to share their sto­ries and show­case their suc­cess­ful and thriv­ing busi­nesses.

SBA to­day launched “Small Busi­ness Own­ers Speak,” an in­ter­ac­tive plat­form fea­tur­ing videos by en­trepreneurs from across the coun­try who have started or grown a busi­ness with the help of the SBA. The videos will be fea­tured at sto­ries.

“I have the great priv­i­lege of meet­ing small busi­ness own­ers from across the coun­try as I travel ev­ery week. But now, thanks to Small Busi­ness Own­ers Speak, you can hear their sto­ries too,” said SBA Ad­min­is­tra­tor Karen Mills. “This page will high­light the voices of suc­cess­ful small busi­ness own­ers who have started or grown a busi­ness thanks to help from the Small Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion.”

The page fea­tures videos sub­mit­ted dur­ing SBA’s 2012 Na­tional Small Busi­ness Week video con­test. But to help reach out to more small busi­ness own­ers, SBA has opened Small Busi­ness Own­ers Speak to other en­trepreneurs in­ter­ested in sub­mit­ting a video to be fea­tured at sto­ries. More in­for­ma­tion about the video sub­mis­sion process can be found on the same page.

The page fea­tures a map of the U.S. that al­lows users to click on videos by state or by us­ing the drop-down menu and search­ing for videos by topic, such as cap­i­tal, coun­sel­ing, fed­eral con­tract­ing or dis­as­ter loans.
