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. The series draws on the expertise of counselors, policymakers and others for accessing resources and tools available to small business owners.

 

The Strategies for Growth video series highlights key topics that engage small business owners in issues critical to small business growth. 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. Topics are indexed by subject and include additional resources for entrepreneurs.
