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
  • Proposal development
  • Partner identification and screening
  • Product development “road mapping”
  • Customer “most important requirements” assessment
  • Marketing planning
  • Competitive analysis
  • Industry disruption assessment
  • Merger and acquisition screening and analysis
  • Business research and proposal training
The experience of the core DBS team includes staff and operational positions at General Dynamics, McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing), Rockwell Collins, Ford Motor Company, AT&T, as well as three services of the US military. DBS consultants have had profit and loss responsibility for start-up ventures, created and managed international offset projects, and identified and negotiated strategic business relationships such as joint ventures, alliances, and mergers. Additionally, DBS personnel have broad experience in all stages of annual company planning efforts including designing and producing final Board of Directors' presentations.
