Interactive Hub for Entrepreneurs Features Real-Time News, Analysis, Video

And Leading Edge Platform for Community Engagement

New York, NY – August 17, 2011 – The AOL Huffington Post Media Group today announces the launch of HuffPost Small Business (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/small-business/), an interactive source for real-time news, video, and analysis of the fast-changing landscape and complex issues facing small business owners. The site offers an engaged community, helpful tips and tools for entrepreneurs, coverage of potential pitfalls and opportunities facing young companies, and a spotlight on industry leaders. Rod Kurtz is Executive Editor. Peter S. Goodman, Executive Business Editor of AOL Huffington Post Media Group, made the announcement.

"Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy, and the key source of job growth," said Peter Goodman. "Our site aims to crystallize a crucial conversation about what they need to prosper. We will spotlight what is working and amplify concerns about what is impeding the growth so sorely needed. We seek to be the ultimate lens on this vital area of American commerce."

Said Rod Kurtz: "HuffPost Small Business is designed to be a one-stop-shop providing resources and advice for entrepreneurs at every stage. Given the exceedingly rapid pace of change in the economy today, small-business owners want news, analysis and information that speaks to their needs as quickly as possible. We're also leveraging HuffPost's unique engagement platform to build a place where business ideas and best practices can be shared. We're looking to foster conversations that help entrepreneurs get started and take their businesses to the next level."

HuffPost Small Business has a prestigious "Board of Directors," a recurring editorial feature in which all-star business leaders and members of the entrepreneurial community offer tips and share their experiences about building their companies. Members include: Director of Texas Venture Labs Rob Adams; Host of MSNBC's Your Business JJ Ramberg; Startup Advisory and Venture Lawyer Jennifer Hill; and serial entrepreneur and MTV star Rob Dyrdek.
