U.S. Small Business Administration

The Small Business Administration (SBA) is the U.S. Government's "central office" for small business whose sole purpose is to assist and promote small business development, utilization and growth. Each Cabinet Department has its own "Small Business" office that further assists the Small Business Community implementing Government-wide SBA policy as an integral part of their acquisition activities. The SBA website is a great place to start to familiarize yourself with the U.S. Government's Small Business Programs, including information about how to start a small business and where to find business opportunities.
