Chrome Business Apps for Startups

It's National Small Business Week, and while small businesses may only be highlighted during one week each year, many vendors have created applications for startups and small businesses that provide value every day of the year.  Common characteristics of these applications are: they are cloud-based, easy to use, require little training, and many are already integrated with each other.  In this vein, Google announced its Chrome for Business initiative which offers a curated list of applications from the Chrome Web Store designed to help small businesses become more efficient, more connected and more organized.  The applications are grouped by function:  Connect with People, Create Content, Get Things Done, Manage Finance.  Check it out -- you just might find that application that will change your life. 

Also, in honor of Small Business Week, Yahoo! is holding an hour long Twitter chat - Turning Browsers into Buyers.  You'll hear tips and insights to help small business owners drive sales in the online world.  The chat is tomorrow June 20, and starts at 12pm PT (3pm ET).  Follow the handle @YSmallBusiness and use the hashtag #GoSMB.
