President Obama is slated to meet with about 100 small business owners at Cleveland State University at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, during what the White House is calling a ‘Winning the Future Forum on Small Business.’

This visit will be Obama’s first to Northeast Ohio this year. The last time the President was in town was in October, just before the midterm elections.

The forum will be held in conjunction with Cleveland State University and Northeast Ohio economic non-profit organizations JumpStart and NorTech , and will take place at CSU’s Wolstein Center.

President Obama will be joined by Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, Energy Secretary Steven Chu, SBA Administrator Karen Mills, CEA Chairman Austan Goolsbee and NEC Director Gene Sperling.

President Obama’s visit comes off the heels of his State of the Union address where he spoke of the nation’s need to out-innovate, out-educate and out-build competitors. With this forum, the president is hoping to hear from small business owners and leaders first hand about their ideas to grow the economy and create more jobs in the small business sector.
