Ruppersberger Event to Help Small Businesses Survive and Thrive During Tough Times
More than 100 local business owners slated to attend seminar to strengthen economy
(Timonium, MD) – Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) will host a seminar on Thursday in Annapolis Junction to give small businesses a much-needed boost in this economy. “Boosting Your Bottom Line” will provide current and aspiring business owners with the resources they need to survive and thrive during these challenging times. Representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration, Federal Reserve, Maryland Small Business Development Center, SCORE business counseling and more will be on hand to equip business owners with the tools they need to start, grow and succeed.
Small businesses create two of every three jobs and are the backbone of our economy, representing 99.7 percent of all employer firms.
“In this difficult economy, our local business owners don’t need a pep talk – they need real tools to overcome the challenges they are facing like struggling to meet payroll, expanding research and development and securing credit,” Congressman Ruppersberger said. “Sometimes, the biggest hurdle is information and we have many resources readily available right here in Maryland to help our local business owners make money and fuel our nation’s economic recovery.”
