The forum includes networking and a panel discussion about resources available to the small business community and efforts underway to make the state more business-friendly. Business owners will discuss their experiences about running a small business in the state.

Audience members will be asked to share ideas on how to make it easier to do business in Rhode Island.

The event will be televised on the next episode of McKee’s new television show.
