The American Small Business Coalition (The ASBC) and Defined Business
Strategies (DBS) form Technical Assistance Partnership to support Small
Businesses working with the Federal Government
(PRWEB) August 13, 2004 -- The American Small Business
Coalition of Columbia, MD is pleased to announce a new partner
relationship with Defined Business Strategies of Woodbridge, VA to
offer a suite of professional services to the Small Business Community.
“These are services traditionally utilized by large
businesses, but inaccessible to small businesses due to cost and
sophistication,” according to Guy Timberlake, Vice President of The
American Small Business Coalition, a Maryland-based Small Business
advocacy group supporting companies that work in the Public Sector.
“Our goal is to provide these services in a way that make them
available to as many Small Businesses as possible.”
Founded in 1995 and offering large government contractors
"as-needed" staff augmentation for key business processes, DBS has
demonstrated the ability to identify new and sometimes unconventional
solutions to business issues.
A few of the projects they have participated in include:
Activity Consolidation Research for U.S. Air Force
Expansion into the Nation of China Strategic Support
National Science Foundation Grant Re-instatement
New Government Research Program Development & Funding Attainment
After nearly ten years of exclusive relationships with large
corporations, DBS has shifted their focus to provide strategic growth
services to small and medium businesses in order to assist
entrepreneurs in reaching their goals.
Catherine Ortiz, Founder and President of Defined Business
Strategies comments, “DBS is pleased to join The American Small
Business Coalition as a Member Company and Technical Assistance
Partner. We look forward to assisting them in their commitment to
delivering essential knowledge resources to small businesses seeking to
do business with the Federal Government.”
DBS’ value-added services include:
Opportunity identification and selection
Partner identification and screening
Product development “road mapping”
Customer “most important requirements” assessment
