Track: Jobs and Transformation: Planners' Roles in Economic Planning Symposium
Small businesses aren’t just smaller versions of big firms—they face a unique set of challenges and limitations. As a result, what small businesses need from their local governments is also unique. This session explores the challenges that small businesses face and the strategies that planners can employ to help them succeed—strategies that typically have lower costs and more long-term benefit than conventional economic development.
