Small Business Nation

U.S. Chamber Small Business Nation is a community that was founded on the open exchange of information and ideas, while creating the opportunity for small businesses to speak with a unified voice.

Small Businesses account for three-quarters of all new jobs in this country and embody the spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship and individual initiative. Because of the U.S. Chamber's key role in ensuring our country’s growth and prosperity, it has launched U.S. Chamber Small Business Nation.

Bringing together America’s small businesses – the engine of economic growth – will strengthen individual endeavors while amplifying the collective voice of business.
