AI: Empowering Small Business Voices

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is spurring innovation across industries and is changing how companies operate, offering significant benefits to small businesses, including improved operational efficiency and cost savings. With rapid AI development and the ongoing call for regulating the technology, it is critical that policymakers prioritize the interests of small businesses. If policymakers overregulate AI, it could make it more expensive to develop and use new AI tools, hurting small businesses the most as they are starting to benefit from AI-powered tools.

But policymakers can’t read your mind and shouldn’t enact new policies without talking to all stakeholders. That’s why it’s crucial for small businesses to tell policymakers what matters most – because if lawmakers don’t hear from all stakeholders, laws and regulations may not reflect their real-world impact.

Given the high stakes and increased pressure on regulating AI, it’s critical that small businesses get involved by:
