Highlighting the experiences of successful entrepreneurs, the U.S. Small Business Administration, in partnership with Dell Inc., launched an online video series offering tools and strategies to help small business owners rebound from the recession and put themselves in a position to expand and create jobs.

 

Strategies for Growth: Advice for Expanding Your Business includes real-world insight, solutions and advice from small business owners who have succeeded in good and bad economic times.

These areas include planning for growth, government contracting, team building, marketing, technology, exporting opportunities and disaster recovery. A “Profiles of Success” segment spotlights two successful entrepreneurs. Strategies for Growth is available at sba.gov/strategiesforgrowth and at the SBA’s YouTube channel, youtube.com/sba.
