U.S. Small Business Administration

The U.S. Small Business Administration, established in 1953, provides financial, technical and management assistance to help Americans start, run, and grow their businesses. With a portfolio of business loans, loan guarantees and disaster loans worth more than $45 billion, in addition to a venture capital portfolio of $13 billion, SBA is the nation’s largest single financial backer of small businesses. Last year, the SBA offered management and technical assistance to more than one million small business owners.

The Company Corporation

With more than 25 offices across the country, The Company Corporation and its affiliated companies, provides the most extensive coverage of any business in our industry. Last year alone we formed over 125,000 new corporations — nearly 1 in every 7 new corporations formed in the U.S.

Women’s Business Enterprise National Council

The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), founded in 1997, is the nation’s leading advocate of women-owned businesses as suppliers to America’s corporations. It also is the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the United States.

Association of Professional Design Firms

Founded in 1985, the Association of Professional Design Firms [APDF] is comprised of leading firms that specialize in identity, communication, package, new media, industrial and commercial interior design. Our point of difference from other design organizations is our emphasis on design as a business.

National Association for the Self-Employed

The National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE) is the nation’s leading resource for the self-employed and micro-businesses (up to ten employees), providing a broad range of benefits and support to help the smallest businesses succeed.
