Organizer

U.S. Small Business Administration

   The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) helps Americans start, build and grow businesses. Through an extensive network of field offices and partnerships with public and private organizations, SBA delivers its services to people throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the U. S. Virgin Islands and Guam.

   The SBA was created in 1953 as an independent agency of the federal government to aid, counsel, assist and protect the interests of small business concerns, to preserve free competitive enterprise and to maintain and strengthen the overall economy of our nation.

   We recognize that small businesses are critical to our economic recovery and strength, to building America's future, and to helping the United States compete in today's global marketplace.
