Small & Medium Business (SMB) Spotlight

School for Startups Radio is devoted to educating entrepreneurs and small business owners. We try to bring you entertaining and educational information that you can use to help your businesses grow. One regular segment is the SMB Spotlight. In this segment, we give big businesses (like Fortune 1000 companies) the opportunity to share with us what their big company is doing to help us small business owners.  What products and services are they working on to help us? What can we expect from them in terms of service? What special programs do they offer for us small guys?
