In this week’s small business news roundup, we’ll talk about the new Small Business Innovation Research program, strategies for emerging small businesses, ways to finance an enterprise, and telltale signs a business is in trouble.

First, some other roundups:

  • This Week in Small Business: What Would Canada Do?: The New York Times’ small business news roundup, including articles on the the Supercommittee failure (or not), whether inflation will help the economy, and how small business owners really feel about the taxes they pay.

And now the rest:

  • Senate Approves Small Business Innovation Program: The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program “gives small firms the ability to develop and market innovative technology, and create new jobs within the United States” and “was approved by the Senate’s Small Business Committee on March 9 by a vote of 18 – 1.”
  • Start Up Strategies from Successful Entrepreneurs: At Business Insider, Cindy Ratzlaff asked “several successful entrepreneurs and small business owners to share either one tip for first year business start ups or one daily habit they’ve incorporated into their lives to provide entrepreneurs with some guidance and inspiration.”

As always, you can keep up with the latest small business news by following @LegalZoom on Twitter and LegalZoom on Facebook.
