Recommendations to Improve the Environment for Small Business Success in the District of Columbia
On February 20th, 2014 the Small Business Policy Project Steering Committee released the final report of recommendations from the year-long Small Business Policy Project aimed at improving the environment for small business success in DC.
With more than 60 recommendations and an action plan timeline, this report contains practical solutions to such issues as
· Expanding and Improving Services
· Giving a Greater Voice to Small Business
· Improving Access to Information and Communication
· Increasing Financial Resources
· Expanding Economic Opportunity
The recommendations in this report represent a significant undertaking by the small businesses and stakeholders who worked collaboratively throughout 2013 to examine challenges to small business success, explore best practices, formulate a shared vision for the District and develop solutions to overcome the challenges.
This has been an unprecedented effort by small business community leaders and stakeholders in the District to come together and reach consensus on what is needed to enable small business success.
CNHED, DSLBD, and the SBPP Steering Committee would like to thank everyone involved over the past year – this report would not be possible without your support and input. Thank You!
