WASHINGTON – A Warwick company is among the first to take advantage of a new U.S. Small Business Administration online platform that gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to share their stories and showcase their successful and thriving businesses.
The SBA last month launched “Small Business Owners Speak,” an interactive platform featuring videos from entrepreneurs from across the country that have started or grown a business with the help of the administration. The videos will be featured at www.sba.gov/stories.
The Warwick small business, A Family Tree School Age Enrichment Program LLC, is featured on the new platform. The company submitted the video during National Small Business Week.
At present the page features videos that were submitted during SBA’s 2012 National Small Business Week video contest. To help reach out to more small-business owners, SBA has opened “Small Business Owners Speak” to other entrepreneurs interested in submitting a video.
The website features a map of the United States 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. •
