On December 3, The Atlantic will present the fifth annual Small Business Forum in Washington, D.C. The event will convene leading policy authorities, business owners, researchers and government officials to discuss what jumpstarts small businesses - and what makes them stay open. We'll cover mobile payments, the future of entrepreneurship and the importance of human capital, among other topics.
Since 1857, The Atlantic has helped shape the national debate on the most critical and contentious issues of our times, from politics, business, and the economy, to technology, arts, and culture. Through in-depth analysis in the monthly print magazine, complemented by up-to-the-minute insights delivered throughout the day on theatlantic.com, The Atlantic provides the nation’s thought leaders and professional class with forward-looking, fresh perspectives that provoke and challenge, define and affect the lives we’re living today, and give shape to the lives we will live tomorrow.
