The 2011 Small Business Survival Summit which was held September 7 -9, and the organizers hoped it would give small business owners and nonprofits that are struggling with a difficult economy to network, share ideas, and benefit from useful seminars on staying efficient and competitive to help them outlast the economic downturn.
