WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 30, 2008)– The Office of Advocacy has launched a new small business blog focusing on regulatory issues, small business research, state regulatory activity, and more. “The Small Business Watchdog” can be found at http://weblog.sba.gov/blog-advo.
“We are excited about the fact that the Office of Advocacy is using social media and Web 2.0 techniques to help join together the small business community across the country,” said Shawne McGibbon, Acting Chief Counsel for Advocacy. “We anticipate that the conversation that arises out of our blog will help everyone who advocates on behalf small business.”
Advocacy encourages all small business owners and other stakeholders to check out the Small Business Watchdog and let us know how we are doing by leaving a comment. We welcome the entire small business community to join the conversation.
The Office of Advocacy, the “small business watchdog” of the federal government, examines the role and status of small business in the economy and independently represents the views of small business to federal agencies, Congress, and the President. It is the source for small business statistics presented in user-friendly formats, and it funds research into small business issues.
