2012 brought small business into the limelight . According to a recent Small Business Association (SBA) economic report, “Small businesses are at the forefront of America’s economic recovery. In the last 26 months we have created 4.25 million private sector jobs – many of them at small and new businesses.”
Subsequently, it’s been a very exciting year for TripIt for Business as we’ve worked hand-in-hand with our customers to make business travel as easy as possible so they can focus on growing their bottom line. We announced new real-time travel spend analytics in January, launched new sharing and calendar features in July, and met impressive folks across the country at SXSW, the Small Business Expo, and the 5-city Small Business Tour.
So it’s with great excitement that we join distinguished industry leaders as a Top 100 2012 Small Business Influencer! Last night at the New York XPO Small Business Conference Awards Gala, TripIt for Business was recognized among an impressive roster of hard working and influential businesses, journalists and leaders in the small business arena. To recognize a few:
- Outstanding small business journalists include Steve Strauss of USA Today, Loren Feldman of the New York Times and Sarah Needleman of the Wall Street Journal
- Most influential small business publications include Inc. Magazine, Entrepreneur and OPEN Forum
- Recognized tools for small business professionals include EventBrite, RingCentral and PartnerUp
Thank you to our customers and peers for another great year!
