Featuring Bill LaFayette, Ph.D., Founder & Owner, Regionomics, LLC; Steve Fireman, President & General Counsel, Economic and Community Development Institute (ECDI); Cheryl Turnbull, Senior Director, Keenan Center for Entrepreneurship at The Ohio State University; and host, Susan Post, Editor of The Metropreneur.com and Associate Editor of ColumbusUnderground.com.

America’s small business creation rate has been dropping for decades. The country’s entrepreneurial spirit seems alive and well, so what’s discouraging entrepreneurs from starting new small businesses? What demographic and economic factors might be behind this decline? The panel examines the current climate for small business and what Ohio is doing to help entrepreneurs and small business in Central Ohio succeed.
