businesses to San Jose, Calif.

Small businesses mean big business to the U.S. economy, driving job
growth and fueling the gross domestic product. Intuit QuickBooks is
launching a program that allows Boulder’s thriving small business
ecosystem and entrepreneurial personality to continue to grow and
expand. The company is making a big commitment to help drive small
business success countrywide this year, through immersive events,
programs and opportunities to flourish.

By shining light on these five respected cities, Intuit, along with Bill
Rancic and others, hopes to provide successful and emerging small
business owners the knowledge, resources and actionable next steps
needed to continue their passion and make better business decisions,
while also celebrating their small business successes.
