Congressman Jim Himes is taking the small business support to the next level. Himes organized an event at Norwalk City Hall, in-order, to educate business owners about government programs that are available.
As small business is the ‘heart of the economy’ so everything needs to be done to assist them. Government has to come forward with more appropriate action plan to help business owners. It is important to understand what can be done for small enterprises. The Norwalk City Hall event is just a step in this direction.
The seminar is a platform where small business owners and government representatives could meet. Representatives comprised of SCORE members, Department of Economic & Community Development (DECD) and people from Small Business Administration (SBA). The attendees of the seminar comprised of over hundred members from business organizations and government bodies.
Himes spoke to business owners in the event. People from manufacturing, restaurants, real estate, flooring, entertainment and retail participated in the event. Himes discussed issues with several members and got a feel of optimism among business owners.
Washington is working to make things easier. At-least, the environment seems better now. Small business loans are available and entrepreneurs are no longer holding back as they are optimistic about the future. Flexibility of small business has eased up in terms of financial aid and loans. It is more so after the signing of the new Jobs Act by President Obama.
