Never has small business growth been more important to America, and women-owned businesses play a critical role.
New York, NY (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
In conjunction with National Women's Day on Friday, March 8, from 9:00 -10:00 a.m. ET, Biz2Credit will host a Twitter event in which budding entrepreneurs can ask advice of experts from the leading online resource for small business finance.
The online Q&A session, "The Venus and Mars of Small Business Finance," will be hosted by Rohit Arora, CEO of Biz2Credit.com and one of the nation's leading experts in small business finance. Arora has consulted with the SBA, the Federal Reserve, and the President's Council of Economic Advisors on how to spur small business growth.
Topics will include:
- Tips on how to prepare a business plan that will result in startup or expansion funding
- Funding programs especially designed for women small business owners
- Types of funding available -- SBA loans, micro loans, lines of credit, etc.
- Examination of credit scores and how to improve them
- Implications of the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") on small businesses
- Benefits of incorporation
- Other small business-related topics
Joining Rohit Arora for the event will be experts, including a CPA, an experienced business plan writer, successful women entrepreneurs, and incorporation expert John Meyer of The Company Corporation. All of them will be able to answer questions about their areas of specialty during the Twitter event.
A 2010 report by The Guardian Life Small Business Research Institute projected that female-owned small businesses will be responsible for creating one-third of the 15.3 million new jobs anticipated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics by 2018. Recent statistics indicate that women-owned businesses are among the fastest growing segments of the U.S. economy.
"Never has small business growth been more important to America, and women-owned businesses play a critical role. Yet, so many women who have great ideas for companies are not able to pursue their dream because of a lack of knowledge on how to get financing," said Rohit Arora, CEO of Biz2Credit. "To fill this gap, we have organized The Venus and Mars of Small Business Finance on Twitter to offer free advice from experts about how to grow their businesses on National Women's Day (Friday, March 8)."
