New Initiative Provides Tips and Tools To Your Local Small Businesses

Small businesses are the backbone of our nation and there are 27 million small businesses in America that employ nearly one-third of the population. As the U.S. economy continues to improve, small businesses represent future economic growth for the country.

In a first-of-its-kind collaboration, leading companies from the insurance, office supply, banking, legal and technology industries will provide small business owners – from those just starting out to long time owners – with access to a broad base of knowledge and advice, all free of charge and without a sales pitch. The Small Business Connection is a web portal that will feature valuable information and thought leadership that will assist with every aspect of running a small business.
