White House Hangout: Small Business Week with SBA Administrator Karen Mills

Throughout the next few days, we will celebrate our nation's entrepreneurs during National Small Business Week. At the U.S. Small Business Administration, we have the great privilege to work with many amazing small business owners -- so we asked them to share their stories in a short video that demonstrates how their small business makes a difference in their local community. The response to SBA's first video contest was incredible.

On Wednesday, May 23, 2012, at 3:00 pm ET during a Google+ Hangout hosted by SBA and the White House, we will announce the winning entries. I will be joined by the small business owners who submitted the winning videos, along with special guest moderator, Diana Ransom, contributing editor of Entrepreneur.com. We'll discuss how SBA assistance helped their small business and what inspired their successes.

If you're interested in starting or growing a business, the Google+ Hangout is a great opportunity for you to learn more about the many programs available to help you achieve your goals. We will also take your questions live during the hangout via Twitter with the hashtag #WHHangout.
