On Monday June 17, Next Street wrapped up the first phase of the City of Columbus small business ecosystem assessment, a six-month project to better understand the state of small business in Columbus and provide a starting point for the City to define its role in supporting business owners. Mayor Andrew Ginther and the City of Columbus want to leverage small business to create more economic opportunities throughout the city. In a recent episode of Columbus Television’s City Chat, Next Street’s Stephen Nunes joined Henry Golatt from the city’s Office of Small Business & Entrepreneur Development to talk about the takeaways from the first phase of the assessment. Nunes and Mr. Golatt also speak to how they will continue to partner over the next several months to turn the research into an action plan.
