What's Your Company's #BizUnited Story?

The American economy is a patchwork of companies of all shapes and sizes, from startups and small businesses to midsized companies and large corporations – that much is easy to see. However, what often goes unnoticed is the stitching that binds those companies together, and it’s the interwoven and interdependent relationships that exist between businesses that spur innovation, create opportunity and move our economy forward.

When a Main Street business turns on the lights, picks up the phone or swipes a credit card, there’s usually a large company working behind the scenes to help make that happen. When a large manufacturer sells a new car, a jetliner or any other product, there are usually dozens if not hundreds of small businesses that contributed to the final product. From suppliers and service providers to financers and distributors, companies of every size count on one another every day.

Under the #BizUnited banner, we’re bringing these stories to light – and we invite you to join us.

Over the coming months, we’ll be publishing stories, producing videos, and spearheading a social media campaign intended to highlight the special relationships that exist between businesses. We invite you to follow along and share your story on the #BizUnited homepage. Here’s a look at our first two videos, which capture the spirit of the campaign.

In addition, we’re shining a spotlight on the incredible innovation that occurs when promising startups and large technology companies come together. Check out our first few stories on some unique collaborations between technology startups and Boeing, Disney and General Electric.

We would love to have you be a part of this campaign, too. Here’s how you can participate:

1. Check out the #BizUnited website to hear from businesses across the country.

2. Share your #BizUnited story on Facebook or Twitter and tag those companies that help your small business do what it does every day. Use the hashtag #BizUnited, and we’ll promote your post on our website and social media platforms.

3. Or, you can simply click here to share your #BizUnited story by filling in the blanks with the companies that help your business succeed.

We believe in America’s united business community, and we’re excited to hear your stories.
