HARTFORD, Conn. (August 27, 2012) – Next month, WNPR (Connecticut Public Radio) brings its Small Business Project to Fairfield County as it hosts the WNPR Small Business Breakfast on Tuesday, September 18 from 7:30-10 a.m. at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk. The Breakfast will feature a live broadcast of the WNPR signature series, Where We Live, hosted by John Dankosky and featuring WNPR business reporter Harriet Jones.
With the elections approaching and the economy front and center in the state and national discourse, this edition of Where We Live presents a panel of small business owners offering their view of the campaigns so far, what they think of the level of debate and which issues they would like highlighted by the candidates. It’s a “real world” business view of the November 2012 election.
WNPR’s Small Business Breakfast provides the opportunity for the small business community to come together and share experiences, discuss relevant issues and walk away with tools and inspiration for greater business success. WNPR’s Dankosky and Jones will be available during the breakfast to talk with guests and answer questions.
The event is free and open to all. Registration is required. To attend, visit WNPR.org, keywords: Small Biz.
This WNPR Small Business Breakfast is sponsored by Founding Partner Webster Bank, with additional support from Albertus Magnus College.
WNPR’s Small Business Project strives to elevate understanding of the challenges faced by Connecticut’s small businesses, to educate policy-makers and to highlight the vital role of small business to the state’s economy. As an off-shoot of WNPR’s Business Desk coverage, the radio series is spearheaded by award-winning business reporter Harriet Jones, who puts small business under a microscope and investigates all aspects of what it takes to run a company of this kind. The project includes weekly reports on small businesses during Morning Edition and All Things Considered, monthly in-depth exploration of small business topics affecting Connecticut, live remote broadcasts of Where We Live during quarterly WNPR Small Business Breakfast forums, and online archived reports and resources for small businesses at wnpr.org.

The next WNPR Small Business Breakfast is scheduled for November 15, 2012, in Wallingford during the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce’s Business Expo at the Oakdale Theatre.
The WNPR Small Business Project is sponsored by Founding Partner Webster Bank
