Public services can use social media and data to grow opportunities for small business — Main Street U.S.A isn’t a one way street, though, and agencies must listen through digital engagement to the needs of entrepreneurs to manage better programs.
At our next federal-wide #SocialGov Summit, hosted by the #SocialGov Community and U.S. Small Business Administration, we will bring social technology innovators from across government to mix with the tech entrepreneur world and set the stage for improved programs in 2014.
Come to meet colleagues from agencies throughout government, discuss new programs and capabilities, watch government data fuel objects through the Internet of Things, and identify obstacles and opportunities we will meet together in the coming year.
The agenda for our first “#SocialGov Summit: Entrepreneurship” includes:
Nobody Beats the Biz — Startups as Partners in Improving Public Services, presented by the U.S. Small Business Administration
Data = Action with The Internet of Things — How to Open APIs and Fuel Objects
Innovative Public Engagement Programs to Support Entrepreneurs
Supporting Entrepreneurship Anytime, Anywhere on Any Device with MobileGov
How government is building apps, engaging with social media and releasing data to benefit entrepreneurs.

Our host venue is the new Martin Luther King Jr. Dream Lab, a civic innovation center open to all citizens to learn and create using technology.

This event is open to anyone in the government and entrepreneurial communities committed to growing more opportunities in 2014.
