This week in Washington, DC, the Small Business Administration (SBA) kicked off the Apps For Entrepreneurs at Digital Capital Week (DCWEEK), challenging developers to create apps to help small businesses and entrepreneurs navigate the federal government more effectively.

Acknowledging that federal websites are difficult to identify, engage and navigate, the SBA created this program to promote better tools to navigate the federal government’s vast resources – including programs, services, and procurement opportunities.

The goal of the Apps for Entrepreneurs program is to give small businesses and entrepreneurs better tools through via this challenge format. Today at the DCWEEK Hackathon, I spoke with Ahson Wardak in the video (below) about the program.
