BizFilings Announces Launch of Small Business Roundtable and Partnership with Chris Brogan and Kitchen Table Companies
MADISON, Wis. (December 13, 2011)
BizFilings, a leader in online incorporation, is pleased to announce both the launch of the BizFilings Small Business Roundtable — a new, Facebook-based resource for entrepreneurs starting out and seeking advice — and a partnership with Chris Brogan, renowned expert in social media, and Kitchen Table Companies, an online community for entrepreneurs. The Small Business Roundtable is a resource and advice platform for current and aspiring entrepreneurs. In creating this resource and partnership, BizFilings is using Facebook to give personal video answers to entrepreneurs’ most pressing small business questions.
Over the past year, BizFilings noticed an increase in the number of questions that entrepreneurs were asking about incorporation, as well as about what to do after incorporating a business. To fill this growing need for help and advice, BizFilings created the Small Business Roundtable, where each week, small business experts answer a number of questions posed by entrepreneurs on the BizFilings Facebook page.
The Small Business Roundtable provides the chance for current and aspiring entrepreneurs to get free, expert advice from small business leaders. Partnering with Kitchen Table Companies, BizFilings is able to bring entrepreneurs access to leading business experts like Chris Brogan and can help entrepreneurs in every stage of their business — from idea to execution. Prelaunch Roundtables were held in November and tackled questions about utilizing social media, staying compliant with a small business, and the best states in which to incorporate a business.
“At BizFilings, we are constantly getting questions about all aspects of small business from entrepreneurs, both current and aspiring,” says Karen Kobelski, member of the executive leadership team at BizFilings. “We are pleased to partner with Kitchen Table Companies to broaden the areas of expertise that we currently have.”
Every Wednesday, the Roundtable is in session, and those with questions post directly to BizFilings’ Facebook page for a chance to get their questions answered by an expert via video. BizFilings posts the answers the following Wednesday, and the public can view the personal responses from the Small Business Roundtable.
“BizFilings is actually one of the ways that Chris Brogan and I met, and we both love providing answers to entrepreneurs,” says Joe Sorge, cofounder of Kitchen Table Companies. “We’re thrilled to partner with BizFilings in this way and share what we’ve learned with small businesses.”
Chris Brogan and Joe Sorge from Kitchen Table Companies and Karen Kobelski from BizFilings currently alternate as the resident experts of the Roundtable each week. All Roundtable answers that have been posted will remain on the BizFilings Facebook page, with new content being posted each week.
