Maria Contreras-Sweet, Administrator of the US Small Business Administration
Bill Esterson MP, Shadow Small Business Minister
Margot James MP, Small Business Minister (invited)
Phillip Blond, Director, ResPublica
ResPublica is delighted to be joined by Administrator Contreras-Sweet, appointed by President Obama to his cabinet to head the Small Business Administration (SBA) in 2014, as she reflects on the successes of her agency and lessons it might hold for the British economy in the wake of Brexit. Bill Esterson MP, Shadow Small Business Minister, will also join us as we ask whether a similar framework might be needed in the UK.
With a select group of attendees drawn from policy, business and academia, this event will form a key part of ResPublica’s ongoing work on Industrial Strategy. As entrepreneurship and home-grown business becomes ever more necessary in an increasingly uncertain global market, small business will be critical to our economic strength. The SBA, formed in 1953, is designed to aid, counsel, assist and protect the interests of American small businesses; we hope to explore whether now is the time for the UK to follow this lead.
