The Internet allows inventors, entrepreneurs, organizations, and individual users to create and innovate in unprecedented ways. The low-to-nonexistent barriers to entry have made the Internet a remarkable growth engine for small businesses, creating jobs in every sector of the economy. Internet users of all kinds are driving this extraordinary pace of innovation.
The Internet Association supports policies that ensure individual users, businesses, and governments are able to freely choose which Internet technologies and platforms to use and support, without those choices being unduly constrained by regulatory structures that cannot keep pace with and often have the unintended consequence of stifling innovation.
Today, The Internet Association stopped in Hollywood, Florida for a small business crawl to highlight local entrepreneurs who are using the Internet in innovative ways to grow their businesses, create jobs, and attract new customers. The walking tour included stops at four unique businesses: Hollywood Antique Center, Presence Community Acupuncture, Hispanic Unity of Florida, and Gino’s Market.
