Give us money.
Come to distance. Quit bulking up these grant processors with information that noone uses or can't apply for because theres noone at the organization to do business. We don't want to have to do business on paper forever. Can't we get some money and do business. Business is about ownership. Let us buy with our money...per capita and quit thinking stuff is getting done and people are having fun by drawing on some 2.39... more »
Quit forcing us to do work without pay. SSI/SSDI is NOT for being used for starting a small business. It's emergency aid. You (The Whitehouse) ought to be ashamed of yourself.
Listen or get forced into taking statistics. We need money to get a business started. Reduce the barriers and write checks. Quit making us jump through hoops to get a grant. If your forced to take statistics it's cause you haven't been writing checks propertly. Give us our money and watch us buy and succeed. Small business ownership shouldn't be the most complicated endeavor known to man. Shouldn't it be fun?... more »
stop forcing us to do business plans with no money. Give us our per capita so we can do business. Mobilization is part of the business strategy. The business does not get done on paper you have to buy things. We already know what to buy. Give us money and watch us leave these forums in the dust.
stop requesting that people spend their money or no money on devisiing/creating a plan or doing business with no money to obtain funding. Give us the money to provide these services. We're not doing it for free and we can't.
Create minority specific entrepreneurship financing, mentoring and FREE continuing education opportunities (via business and law schools around the country) especially since minority entrepreneurs are more likely to invest in lower income communities hard hit by the recession.
The only reason I do not have a small business right now is because I pay a 50% income tax on my profits. If I work for someone else my tax is one third of my income. You need to change the tax portion for small business owners.
I suggest you give corporations and companies for small businesses and enterpenaurs tax incentives to "pay it foward " by assisting average people to open a business and or encourage enterpenaur ventures. For example, wouldn't it be great if you could "rent to own" an apartment complex or refurbish property housing, using a portion of your rent towards owenrship and or a business as a property a manager?

I heard about this really cool idea that was invented in Italy hundreds of years ago that might do some good here. People get together and pool their excess cash, which is then loaned out in the local community to help businesses with their capital needs. They call it a Bank.
I would like to see an opportunity for entrepreneurs like me " bad credit, and no money for investment or research" get some kind of funding like a revolving low interest line of credit that doesn't have to be paid back until the product or idea has been implemented and starts making monies. I have several ideas in the energy dept that would create jobs and help the environment that i can't get financing for
We should bring all of the troops home from Europe and Asia immediately. At the very least they will by their clothes, gasoline, food and restaurant meals in the USA instead of wherever they are now, immediately creating jobs for all the people who sell it to them.
Dear Start Up America - President Obama and Staff, Understanding our government is innovation new ways to create jobs here in America, I believe I have a promising solution that can add to achieving this immediately and in a big way. Companies cannot ignore the fact that the world is becoming more unsafe, and that many foreign countries which offer contact center services are inherently unstable either economically,... more »
Our government can generate thousands of new jobs/businesses if all of our National and State Parks purchased only American Made products to sell as souvenirs and gifts in their shops. I make pottery. If I supplied just mugs to State and National Parks in Tennessee I would have to add several employees. Expand this to glass, leather, wood, plastic, fabric, printed things on a nationwide basis and we can start to build... more »
There should be an incentive for any one whose idea is accepted and implemented.
This will bring more enthusiasm to these forums.
I suggest that there should be at least $500.00 incentive anyone whose idea is accepted and implemented by the Govt.
