Kerrigan in The Washington Times: “Apps for an Edge”

In a July 19 Washington Times oped, SBE Council President & CEO Karen Kerrigan covers the ways that wireless technologies are helping the economy, and specifically small business owners.

Kerrigan reports on SBE Council's recent study, “Saving Time and Money With Mobile Apps”, which shows that entrepreneurs are turning to mobile apps to operate their businesses and stay competitive. Mobile devices and apps are helping small businesses operate more productively, cut costs and find new revenue streams.

The growing use of mobile apps and wireless devices means we will need more capacity and greater investment in the nation’s wireless infrastructure. Kerrigan lays out how government should fundamentally respond to this need: “Regulators and Congress can spur wireless growth through smart policy, but mostly by staying out of the way. They should avoid the temptation to dictate business models to this rapidly changing industry, which is thriving on private investment. Now is not the time to stunt such needed activity.”
