Survey seeks reasons S.F. businesses may not grow

The Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development is asking business owners and employees to take a 35-question online survey to determine the barriers to business growth in San Francisco.

The survey, which can be accessed at www.sfgov.org/site/moed, is part of the San Francisco Economic Strategy, a voter-mandated planning process intended to make it easier to do business in The City. The results of the survey will be used to create city policies aimed at fostering economic development.

Both events begin at noon at 11 Grove St. and are free to the public.
