In a report released by ArtPlace, an initiative of national and regional foundations, federal agencies and major banks to accelerate creative placemaking, Baltimore’s Downtown was identified as one of the 44 Top ArtPlaces in the nation. Cities with neighborhoods that have been exceptionally successful at combining art, artists and venues for creativity and expression with independent businesses, retail shops and restaurants, and a walkable lifestyle to make vibrant neighborhoods were singled out by ArtPlace for their livability and creativity.

The SBA has just launched a new “Build a Business Plan” online tool that guides small business owners through the process of creating a basic, downloadable business plan. The great thing about this tool is you can build a plan in smaller bites, save your progress and return at your leisure.
To use the tool, you’ll need to be a member of the SBA Community and then log in. The tool offers a tab-based step-by-step guide that lets you enter information into a template for each section of the business plan, including market analysis, company description and financial projections. The tool is secure and confidential and will keep your plan on record for up to six months. You can also save, download or email the plan at any time. www.sba.gov
