2. Policy & advocacy: We develop and support policies that benefit the entire small business ecosystem—ranging from boosting access to responsible capital, ensuring affordable access to quality healthcare and other essential benefits, and promoting fair competition.
3. Research & insights: We conduct wide-ranging research to understand small business owners’ needs, challenges and opportunities. Focused on uncovering the perspectives of businesses owned by people of color, women and other under-resourced entrepreneurs, we communicate our findings to policymakers, the media and other stakeholders.
