White House to launch online resource for small businesses

The White House will be unveiling a new website that will act as one-stop virtual shop to provide information and resources for small businesses and help owners succeed in their entrepreneurial endeavors.

Federal CIO Steven VanRoekel made the announcement Jan. 13 when delivering a speech about federal mobility at a luncheon hosted by the Association for Federal Information Resources Management.

BusinessUSA.gov,  which VanRoekel said will launch in “a few weeks,” pools information and services from the government into one integrated network for U.S. business owners and entrepreneurs.

The main focus of the website is to help U.S. business succeed and grow, VanRoekel said. The website will provide entrepreneurs with relevant information from one consolidated source instead of having them navigate through several different options, he said.

I would have thought that the SBA would run this. Do they have input? How do they influence?
