Being a supplier to a large business is a game changer. But, we know that small businesses often lack the capital, skills and access to market opportunities to be effective suppliers. We want to change that!
That’s why the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) launched the American Supplier Initiative, a federal government-wide initiative designed to increase government and commercial supply chain opportunities for small firms. This is important because small businesses who are suppliers to large corporations reported revenue growth of more than 250 percent and employment increased by more than 150 percent on average.
As a part of the American Supplier Initiative, the U.S. Small Business Administration is holding a series of supply chain events, in collaboration with federal agencies and private companies, throughout the country to provide the tools and resources needed for small businesses to become effective suppliers. And we want to make connecting your business to large companies easier and more efficient. The first of these events will be held in Atlanta, GA, on May 20th. Here are the details. We hope to see you there.
