Business.gov launches online community

A Web-site resource is available to small businesses through the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) business gateway program. The Web site is busgovlogo-sponsored online community for small businesses.

The Web site aims to provide small business owners, bloggers, and the government with a place to discuss and share information about starting and running a successful business.

In addition to providing a “home” where users can share expertise and unique experiences, the site also provides a pioneering opportunity for small businesses to provide direct input into Business.gov and voice the ways government and the online community can better serve them.

“Over the past year, we have significantly expanded our efforts to engage with small business owners, by giving them easy access to the information they need to run their business,” said Nancy Sternberg, program manager of Business Gateway. “The launch of the Business.gov Community represents a new milestone. Through the application of Web 2.0 technologies, we hope to unite small business owners, industry experts and government, and take the program to a new level of collaborative knowledge-sharing and insight.”

Over the next few months, the Business.gov Community will expand to include additional features and resources that address specific user interests and provide access to the wider pool of government and Business.gov partner resources available to the small business owner.

Business.gov is managed by the U.S. Small Business Administration in partnership with 21 other federal agencies. This partnership, known as Business Gateway, provides information services to the small business community to save time and money, engage citizens to participate, and enable collaboration across all key levels of government.
