Small business is Americanís most powerful engine of opportunity and economic growth. For millions of Americans, starting a business is the best opportunity to turn a dream into reality.
However, barriers to opportunity still prevent some individuals from taking full advantage of the opportunity to own a small business. By expanding the ability for more Americans to realize their business ownership dreams, the foundation of the economy will be further diversified and strengthened. The SBA seeks to foster an environment where small businesses can overcome barriers to economic opportunity in all areas of business development, including government contracting. This assistance will provide greater economic opportunity that will further contribute to the growth of the American economy.
