According to this blog post by Karen Gordon Mills, Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration, recent reports show that “small suppliers can more than triple revenue growth and more than double job growth only a few years after becoming a large company supplier.”
Are you ready to grow?
As part of the American Supplier Initiative to support American manufacturing and small business growth, the U.S. Small Business Administration has collaborated with a consortium of large companies to bring you Supplier Connection.
Created by the IBM Foundation, Supplier Connection is a free online common application that allows small businesses to simultaneously send information about their products and services to private sector buyers.
Current buyers include fifteen household brands with a combined purchasing power of $300 billion each year. More large companies are expected to be added in the coming months.
