SBAM in the News: Economic gardening, paperwork issues in health care reform, social networking for small businesses

July 9, 2010

Crain’s Detroit Business has an article entitled “For economic development, SBAM wants state to help entrepreneurs, not woo out-of-state companies.” Excerpt:
“If you go out to Silicon Valley, entrepreneurs are heroes,” (SBAM Vice President Communications Michael Rogers) said. “At the turn of the century, we were the leader in innovation, and now we need to retool and refocus our (economic development) efforts to create a culture that rewards risk taking and entrepreneurial thinking that can lead to small-business growth.”Read the entire article here.
The Detroit News article “Marketers learning how to use sites like Facebook, Twitter” quotes SBAM as observing that “developing an effective social media strategy isn’t easy.” Read the article here.
Finally, SBAM board member David Rhoa, owner of Lake Michigan mailers in Kalamazoo, was featured on WWMT-TV3 in a report criticizing the new health care law’s onerous 1009 form provisions. View below:
