Have your voice heard | Startup America Reducing Barriers

By Karen Mills, Former SBA Administrator
Published: March 21, 2011 Updated: May 16, 2011

This week there are two opportunities for you to have your voice heard by the Administration.

First, on Tuesday, Treasury Secretary Geithner and I are participating in a conference on access to capital. The conference is bringing together policymakers, entrepreneurs, investors, and others to look at how we can get more capital into the hands of small businesses. And we want to hear from you. If you have a question or an idea for us to discuss at the conference, email it to by Monday evening.

Next, as part of Startup America, Administration officials have been traveling the country, talking with entrepreneurs about what barriers stand in their way. To get even more input, we’re holding an online Reducing Barriers roundtable with Fast Company. On Wednesday from 12-12:45 pm, Gene Sperling, chair of the National Economic Council, and I, want to hear from you about what regulations we can change and what we can do to help entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses.
