App Description

The OPEN Forum app is a daily digest from American Express OPEN, designed to fit the various interests and busy schedules of small business owners.

It’s no secret that growing a small business takes time and focus. Sometimes, it is difficult to get focused and stay on track. The new OPEN Forum app is designed to help you move your business forward with a daily digest of insights and inspiration from small business owners like you.

First, choose areas of your business that you’d like to focus on — from “Managing Money” to “Building Your Team”. Then, set a time to get a daily reminder to spend a few minutes reading up on the latest stories, inspirational quotes and articles that may help you take your business to the next level.

Daily digests are written by small business owners and experts. They cover both your focus area and other important small business topics. Read your digest each day at a time that works for you. If you happen to skip a day, you can easily catch up on anything you may have missed earlier in the week to stay on track.

- Select up to four focus areas and customize the information you receive in your small business digest every day.
- Set a time for your daily reminder to come back and check out the latest and greatest small business content.
- Enjoy bite-sized quotes, lists and articles to help you grow your small business.
- Come back to articles you may have missed or want to read later using the calendar feature.
- Want to take your digest on the go? Read it anywhere with offline availability.
