  • The 2011 Small Business Roundtable titled "Small Business Jobs Act: What Does It Mean for You?" was sponsored by First Financial Bank and the UC Center for Entrepreneurship Education & Research.


Over 150 Cincinnati business owners and advisers gathered to hear from local industry experts regarding the Small Business Jobs Act Wednesday, January 19 at the Manor House in Mason, Ohio. The University of Cincinnati (UC) Center for Entrepreneurship Education & Research partnered with First Financial Bank to sponsor the 2011 Small Business Roundtable titled, "Small Business Jobs Act: What Does It Mean for you?" 

 Charles H. Matthews, PhD, Executive Director of the UC Center for Entrepreneurship moderated the roundtable. Panel leaders included:

  • Thomas M. Woebkenberg, Attorney, Wood and Lamping
  • Dan Fales, CPA and Attorney, Clark, Shaffer and Hackett
  • Adrian Breen, Regional President, First Financial Bank Greater Cincinnati/Kentucky
  • Bonnie Deer, the U.S. Small Business Administration
  • Chad Rupp, Jteam and Rupps, local business owner

"The round table presented a great opportunity for business owners to learn about the benefits associated with the new legislation and how their company can start taking advantage of the new business incentives," says Matthews. "I encourage business owners to check out the information on the US SBA web site to learn more about the benefits of the Small Business Jobs Act. There are some excellent loan, tax incentive, and management counseling provisions from which local small and medium enterprises might benefit."
