"According to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA),  small businesses make up more than 99.7% of all employers and create 75 percent of the net new jobs in our economy.  Small businesses are the engine of our economy.  By supporting their efforts, we spur economic opportunity and provide a platform for commercial participation in under served sectors of our community." - Cherri Branson
