Senator Warner was elected to the U.S. Senate in November 2008, and serves on the Senate's Banking, Budget, Commerce and Rules committees. He served as Governor of Virginia from 2002-2006 after spending 20 years as a business leader in the high-tech industry. He also is the co-founder of telecommunications firm Nextel Communications, now known as Sprint Nextel (NYSE: S).

"Senator Warner has a wealth of knowledge in both business and the high-tech industry," said Tim Kelly, president of Network Solutions.

Senator Warner will be joined at the conference by Wired Magazine Editor-in-Chief and author Chris Anderson, as well as small business experts and leaders from across various business sectors.

The GrowSmartBiz Conference was created as a result of the Small Business Success Index (SBSI) - an ongoing measurement of the overall health of small businesses commissioned by the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business and Network Solutions. The conference will focus on key areas of business that small businesses view as critical to their success, including: access to capital, marketing and innovation, and computer technology.
