The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) launched a new web page and blog dedicated to educating small business owners about the Affordable Care Act. The new tools will serve as a gateway for small business owners connecting them with information provided by SBA’s federal partners responsible for implementing the law, including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
SBA’s new web page, www.sba.gov/healthcare, breaks down the key provisions of the Act based on business size in the following categories: self-employed, fewer than 25 employees, fewer than 50 employees and more than 50 employees.
“Understanding Crowdfunding” will be the topic of the next free Chamber Business Networking event. Senator Bennet was instrumental in getting Congress to approve a solution allowing for-profit companies to raise money and will have field staff help in the presentation. The event is no-host, 6-8 p.m. at the Bistro on March 13, 2013. You do not have to be a chamber member to attend, so come out and network!
“I like to define networking as cultivating mutually beneficial, give-and-take, win-win relationships… The end result may be to develop a large and diverse group of people who will gladly and continually refer a lot of business to us, while we do the same for them.” –Bob Burg
