Newport Small Business Round Table

Mission Statement
The Small Business Roundtable (SBRT) strives to be a conduit for addressing and bringing forward issues and concerns impacting the Small Business community supporting naval activities in the Newport, RI area. Collaboration between large and small businesses, and the government, is essential to total overall success.

Small Business Roundtable Focus Group Overview
The SBRT sent out in excess of 100 surveys (each with 10 questions). The SBRT reviewed each survey response, and sorted them into “Focus Groups”. The Focus Groups will review each response, assign a priority, send to a more appropriate organization for resolution (i.e. SENEDIA, NCMA, the NUWC Newport SeaPort-e Zone 1 Business Council, etc) if applicable, and develop strategies for addressing them. The SBRT over-arching goal is to not only identify issues, but come up with specific strategies for dealing with them, and to communicate these strategies, and the results, to the community.
