Georgia Tech’s Enterprise Innovation Institute, as a part of its Innovations in Economic Development Forum, is sponsoring “Small Business Dynamics and Job Creation: Facts, Obstacles and Best Practices” on Wednesday, Feb. 2, 2011.
Brian Headd, an economist with the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, is the guest speaker for this event.
With the unemployment rate remaining stubbornly high, small businesses — and their ability to generate new jobs — have been receiving focused attention from local, state and federal governments. Understanding how these businesses form, grow, and end can suggest ways to increase their chances for survival and expansion.
This forum is free and open to the public, and will be held from 12:30 pm until 2:00 pm in the Hodges Room on the 3rd floor of the Centergy Building, located at 75 – 5th St., NW, Atlanta, GA 30308.
