Winning the Future with Small Business President Obama spent Tuesday in Cleveland listening to more than a hundred small business leaders from Northeast Ohio talk about barriers to their growth. He asked: "How can America help you succeed so that you can help America succeed?" Wednesday on the Sound of Ideas, we'll find out what they told him and whether the forum will succeed in spurring small business development here or just serve as a Northeast Ohio stop for the president's re-election campaign. Join the conversation Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.




Brad Whitehead, President, Fund for our Economic Future
John Grabner, CEO, Cardinal Fastener
Sharon Alvarez, Professor of Entrepreneurship, Fisher College of Business, Ohio State University
