Overview

Importance of Small Businesses
Small business firms contribute approximately 80 percent of our nation’s job growth. Our entrepreneurial approach fosters innovation, drive and success. Often considered “renegades,” we are an invaluable asset to our nation’s economy and the military mission.

The SAME Small Business Community of Interest (COI) is committed to keeping SAME Members informed with the most up–to–date information from the world of small business. We regularly send out an electronic newsletter to help you stay ahead of the latest trends and take advantage of current developments in growth and partnerships.

If you are interested in getting more information about Small Business Community activities, or in serving on the SAME Small Business COI Steering Committee, please e-mail with your contact info to Mario Burgos and Ann McLeod.

“SAME is the perfect organization for A/E/C small businesses to meet with, learn from, and network with federal agencies and government contractors. Unlike many organizations, there is a true sense of camaraderie, service, and authenticity.”
