SBA News

Some thoughts from Business Opportunities Weblog that deserve consideration.

Our Future With Our New President
Many wonder exactly how qualified Mills is to run the SBA given she is a venture capitalist. Well let’s see…she was a partner/director of Solera Capital a venture capital firm, a Harvard business school graduate and president of private equity business firm MMP Group. It sound’s to me like she just may have the credentials that this country needs right now.

Marketing consultant Scott Testa argues that Mill’s while being a venture capitalist is naturally a risk taker and that just may be what the SBA needs…to take some new risk’s.

Though Mills’ experience is more ambitious entrepreneur than stereotypical mom-and-pop shop, that may be just what the SBA needs to inject new ideas and resources — and, in turn, boost the ailing economy.

What are some of your thoughts on how Karen Mills will do in heading up the SBA?

Excuse me but a venture capitalist would seem a perfect fit for an agency like the SBA.
