BUSINESS AND ACCESS TO CAPITAL
The overall state of the economy remains at the forefront of the national dialogue. Small businesses continue to lead the charge in opening up enterprises and pursuing capital structures to maximize their growth potential. Policy makers, legislators, regulators and federal agencies like the SBA, Treasury and Commerce explore strategies to achieve financial inclusion, but there continues to be significant room for improvement to increase opportunities, particularly for minority communities.
Access to capital is extremely important to help support the local economy and incentivize small businesses. Let's work together, strategize together and open new markets together. We need to grow the economy, and 2019 needs to be a year of action.
