Small Business Insight The concept for Small Business Insight was born out of a group of small business owners in the Hampton Roads area who experience a common need. Having searched for a publication to discuss the countless issues of importance to someone developing a growing company, we finally decided to take the entrepreneurial approach and start our own publication to fulfill that need. We hope Small Business Insight will give area business owners a way to better communicate with each other as well as a forum to learn, develop relationships and share both the difficulties and joys of growing a business. We offer a variety of articles on small business issues as well as profiles of successful local companies. We also wanted to build a community of small business people by offering a variety of networking experiences by which we can all learn from each other.
