PHOENIX, ARIZONA: May 10, 2010 – R.V.P. of Enterprise Development Group, Michelle Brown, becomes President of the Small Business Partnership Alliance. Her mission as leader of the non-profit organization located in Phoenix, Arizona is to help Small Businesses win more business contracts with government and private sector companies. The Small Business Partnership Alliance was organized by small businesses in the local Phoenix and Tucson areas to help small businesses team up with larger companies receiving federal contracting dollars. “Small businesses in general are having a difficult time keeping their doors open. Right now small businesses are doing everything possible to stay alive, and we must do something to help them now” says Holly Anderson, Public Relations Director.
This applies even more so to women and minority owned businesses. Many of the programs designed for women, minority and disadvantaged small businesses are going away, or being combined with regular small business programs due to budgetary constraints. The Small Business Partnership Alliance efforts will be focused on getting small businesses more contracts with local agencies and companies such as General Dynamics, Sundt, Boeing, Raytheon and Stantec. These companies are receiving hundreds of millions in federal contracting dollars with goals to work with small businesses.
“Due to a lack of personnel resources and marketing assistance, it has been difficult for small businesses to team up with large primes receiving federal contracts from the Department of Defense, the Navy and other government agencies” according to Michelle Brown, new President of SBO Alliance. To help small businesses overcome some of these challenges, Brown has written a contracting manual for small businesses “Win Government & Private Sector Contracts Now – Grow Your Business In Difficult Economic Times.”
Brown’s primary role is to determine the best strategies for small business and big business to work together. “It requires both large and small to create jobs and reenergize this economy. Now is the time to ensure that we are all working together. Times are difficult for everyone, but it is important for every business entity to have an opportunity in the federal contracting process. With efforts such as this, we will definitely see progress says Brown.”
