The meetings are open to all small business operators and employees in Montgomery County.

Pre-registration is required and may be done online here.

Congressman John Delaney was elected in 2012 to serve Maryland’s Sixth District, which encompasses portions of the Washington D.C. suburbs of Montgomery and Frederick Counties and all of Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties. Delaney is the only former CEO of a publicly traded company serving in the House of Representatives, having done that twice, and brings to Washington an extensive experience as a successful entrepreneur and as a private sector and non-profit leader.

As the son of a union electrician, Delaney grew up in a blue collar household. Scholarships from his father’s union (IBEW Local 164), the American Legion, VFW, and the Lion’s Club, allowed Delaney to attend college. Delaney is a graduate of Columbia University and Georgetown University Law Center. A business builder, Delaney founded two New York Stock Exchange listed companies before the age of 40, and is a past winner of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

John Delaney spent his business career starting and running successful companies and helping small businesses grow. John’s companies were both founded in Maryland, CapitalSource, which Delaney launched in 2000 and became a public company in 2003, lent money to thousands of small businesses around the country and has been recognized by the Treasury Department for lending to disadvantaged communities while also receiving numerous awards as one of the best places to work in the Washington D.C. region. Delaney is Chairman Emeritus of CapitalSource. Prior to CapitalSource, he founded HealthCare Financial Partners, a successful company that was started in 1993 and became a public company in 1996.

Congressman Delaney’s primary focus in office is to restore our nation’s economic competitiveness so that we can have a strong middle class, raise our standard of living, and expand the number of good jobs available to Americans. In 2011, Delaney founded Blueprint Maryland, a non-profit dedicated to invigorating Maryland’s private sector. Blueprint Maryland gathered businesspeople, educators, labor representatives, and policy experts together to chart a way towards a high-tech, high-information, economy.
