For communities seeking jobs and economic prosperity, launching new businesses isn’t enough. Good jobs and wages come from growing a business, not simply starting one. However, policies that promote business growth are very different from those that promote business starts.

Few cities know this better than Greater Miami, which has led the nation in business creation. FIU researchers recently completed a study that assesses the state of small business in Miami, Houston, San Diego, Seattle, Orlando, Atlanta and Charlotte.

We invite you to join a discussion with national thought leaders, federal agency appointees, and the Kauffman Foundation that will identify needed policy shifts and promising practices that hold the promise to grow the size and impact of our small businesses nationwide.

This is just perfect and right on point with current efforts to scale our start up sector in Miami. I look forward to hearing from our Distinguished FIU Research team and the subsequent policy recommendations.
