We’re constantly working to ensure that small businesses with big potential have the support they need to scale up and create hundreds – or thousands – of jobs. These high-growth firms are critical to helping America out-compete and out-innovate the rest of the world.
Today, we launched a video series with ADP that profiles six entrepreneurs who have worked with the SBA to help create well-known American companies: Columbia Sportswear, Radio One, Allen Edmonds, Gymboree, Cerner Corporation, and Ruiz Foods.
You can see a short highlights video below, and the longer stories of each individual company are now up at www.sba.gov/AmericasBest.
Through this series, you can hear from people who share their personal stories, telling the challenges they faced while offering an inspirational look at the resiliency of America’s entrepreneurial spirit.
Along with our new Startup America initiative, the video series is part of SBA’s ongoing efforts to empower entrepreneurs and provide high-growth small businesses with the tools and information they need to succeed. I hope you find these videos to be as inspirational as I did, showing how people with small businesses and big ideas can change the world.
