In yesterday’s issue of IEDC‘s Economic Development Now, a publication by the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, “What Works for Small Business: A State and Local Government Reference Guide of Proven Practices for Assisting Small Businesses” is featured.
Tennessee was represented in the publication by some of its programs that assist small business:
- The Tennessee Rural Opportunity Fund
- Tennessee Business Matchmaking
- Small Business Regulatory Review Committee (SBRRC)
- Pick Tennessee Products
- Voice of the ORNL Customer Survey
According to its introduction, “(t)his reference guide is intended as a living document, and so we welcome feedback and encourage additional submissions. All appropriate submissions are incorporated into this reference guide unedited from the original submitted text.”
These are not by far the only programs out there to help small business. For a specific list of business assistance, check out http://www.business.hickmantn.org/ .
