National Small Business Roundtable Kicks Off in Durham

Entrepreneurs in the Triangle have the chance to tell the federal government how it can help grow their businesses. The U-S Small Business Administration will host a roundtable in Durham today to gather ideas for reducing small business regulations. S-B-A press secretary Hayley Meadvin says Durham is the first stop in the series of meetings called Startup America.

"These roundtables are going to go to eight different cities across the country and hear straight from entrepreneurs what's working for them and what's not. And how can the government help them and how can the government get our of their way and allow them to grow their business and create jobs?"

Input from entrepreneurs will be included in a final report that will guide federal agencies in creating new small business regulations. Senior officials in the Obama administration will be at today's meeting to receive ideas.
