Small Business Owners, Including Ark’s Rebecca Yates, attend Goldman Sachs Summit

‘More than 110 of Utah’s small business owners attended the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Summit in Washington DC.  As graduates of the small business-training program, run by Salt Lake Community College, business leaders heard from the ‘who’s who’ of entrepreneurism and government leadership such as Tyler Perry, Senator Marco Rubio and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The summit, titled The Big Power of Small Business, showcased speakers like Richard Branson of Virgin Group who said ‘in order to be a good leader, you have to be a good listener.’ Sara Blakely, Founder and CEO of Spanx, a billion dollar brand, told her story of starting her business with grit and determination. Warren Buffett received a standing ovation as he spoke about the remarkable things small business leaders do and how they impact the economy and lives in every community.’
