THE AMERICAN SMALL BUSINESS COALITION (sm) gives entrepreneurs and companies much needed technical assistance, mentoring and training to enhance their level of competitiveness in doing business with Federal Government agencies and Government Prime Contractors.
(PRWEB) August 9, 2004 -- There is new ally for Small Businesses.

An ally they can turn to as they solicit the U.S. Government for business opportunities.

This ally will explain the acronyms, jargon and rules of conduct to them, which are so important to understand in this market.

This ally will treat them fairly and with respect and share the benefits of experience and knowledge with them.

This new ally is The American Small Business Coalition (sm) a privately funded, membership-based advocacy organization providing technical assistance, mentoring and training to Small Businesses working with the Government, as well as those just starting out. We help companies to professionally engage U.S. Government agencies and the Prime Contractors that support the Government.

Business Memberships range from $250 to $600 per year and vary in price based on the size of the company (number of employees) and if the assistance is focused on the Government, or Prime Contractors and the Government.

The basis of the membership is focused and ongoing networking and marketing of Member Companies. Members are given access to discussion groups and other live and automated resources to help them in the normal course of doing business. When a more specialized resource is needed, such as a Proposal Writer, these services are available to the Members at reasonable rates.

“The idea is to make these services attainable and effective for Small Business,” says Guy Timberlake, Vice President and Co-Founder of The ASBC. “If a company cannot access professional services and knowledge resources in order to enhance their ability to compete, their chances for success are extremely limited.”

The ASBC has compiled a team of experienced professionals who bring a plethora of experience and skill from Government and Industry. Former Contracting Officers and Small Business Specialists are teamed up with career Sales, Business Development, Project Management and Operations professionals in order to deliver the full life-cycle of services needed to plan, start and manage a company that operates in the Government sector.

Current partnerships include private, non-profit and public organizations that address subsets of the overall membership demographic. In order to be a Member of The ASBC, a company need only qualify as a Small Business according to the Small Business Administration (SBA) guidelines and the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) size standards. Current Member Companies are Small, Small Disadvantaged, Woman-owned, Veteran and Service Disabled Veteran-owned, 8(a) Certified, HUB Zone, Alaskan-Native and combinations of those and others.

The American Small Business Coalition (sm) already has success stories to share. If you would like to find out more, call or visit the website at

Two other groups are the focus of The ASBC mission as well. The U.S. Government and the Large Businesses that support the Government are also of significant interest. Government Small Business Offices (OSDBU’s and SADBU’s) and Vendor Supplier Diversity Programs receive supplemental services to support their Small Business Initiatives at no cost.
