LinkedIn for Groups provides enhanced, private online networking capability for Members of The ASBC.

COLUMBIA, MD (PRWEB) August 17, 2004 -- Professional networking is an essential for anyone in business, and is no less important for Small Businesses working in the Public Sector. The American Small Business Coalition has entered into an agreement with LinkedIn of Mountain View, CA to provide LinkedIn for Groups for The ASBC's Online Affinity Networking.

LinkedIn is the premier provider of private and effective online networking tools used by over 900,000 professionals in all industries and across the globe. By managing existing professional networks on LinkedIn, professionals can discover inside connections they never knew they had and reach the businesspeople they need to meet through referrals from people they already know and trust.

LinkedIn facilitates hiring, business partnerships and access to industry experts through referrals based on strong and mutually confirmed connections. LinkedIn accelerates the business effectiveness and career success of individual professionals by allowing them to receive and seek out opportunities through their network while protecting their privacy, their inbox and their existing professional relationships.

The ASBC is a membership-based Small Business advocacy group. The ASBC provides procurement-based technical assistance, networking, mentoring and training for companies working with U.S. Government agencies and prime contractors that support the Government. Its mission also includes providing U.S. Government Small Business Offices with no cost vendor outreach services directly related to achieving and exceeding their small business goals. This unique relationship provides additional benefits to Member Companies as they seek exposure and opportunities with these agencies. The ASBC membership demographic includes Small, Woman-owned, Minority-owned, Veteran and Service Disabled Veteran-owned, SBA 8(a) certified, HUB Zone, Alaskan Native and Native American-owned companies. Some of the disciplines represented include sign-making, Intelligence services, construction, telecommunications, IT, manufacturing, training and medical staffing.
