CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, in the East Room of the White House, big discussions will take place for 100 small business leaders from across the country. Included on the list is Tana Greene, CEO of Blue Bloodhound, a North Carolina-based start-up and innovative, online marketplace to connect truck drivers with motor carriers, transforming the way hiring works.
Participants at the White House Small Business Forum: The Engine of the American Dream, include President Donald J. Trump; Senior Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump; SBA Administrator Linda McMahon; along with leaders like Greene who represent 29 million small businesses in America, which employ nearly half of all American workers and account for 56.8 million jobs.
Greene is a self-proclaimed serial entrepreneur who began her first business 30 years ago. Her most recent venture is Blue Bloodhound, where she raised $10 million in private funding to launch an on-line marketplace that disrupts the long-held belief that there is a shortage of truck drivers.
"Blue Bloodhound proves that the current method of hiring can be revolutionized by putting underutilized truck drivers back into the workforce, adding dramatic momentum to the economy, says Greene, CEO of Blue Bloodhound. "We are working to revolutionize a broken system and are humbled by the President's attention, interest and continued support of small businesses like Blue Bloodhound."
The Small Business Administration is approaching it's 65th anniversary, designed to encourage small business enterprise and help Americans start, grow and build small business.
Blue Bloodhound, founded in 2014, is a privately held company based in Davidson, North Carolina. The company is the first to innovate and transform the way the transportation industry works by automating transaction between professional truck drivers and motor carriers.
