(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – With more than 200 small business members (located in 25 U.S. states) focused on fulfilling and securing federal government contracts in the U.S. and abroad, the Small Business Association for International Companies (SBAIC) rings in 2018 with a new organizational slogan and a smartly designed, user-friendly new website.
“In 2017, U.S. small businesses secured worldwide contracts ranging from $100,000 to over $42 million,” said SBAIC Board Chairman Carlos Rivera. “We anticipate even greater achievements in 2018, and our newly designed website will be an exciting and enabling tool in that endeavor.”
“Our new website is attractive, and enables our members to easily navigate and search categories,” he continued. “That will help them find compatible business partners to collaborate with as they work with U.S. government agencies – and compete for contracts in the international marketplace.”
“In both design and functionality, our new website is a welcoming call to assist the U.S. government in their market research for viable U.S. small businesses with experience overseas. SBAIC’s mission supports the exciting and ongoing quest to assist small businesses in attaining success in the burgeoning global government business landscape,”
said Jasmine Gould, of Strategic Consulting Partners and co-chair of the SBAIC communications committee. “We want to thank Uhsome for giving our website a fresh new look and logo that is emblematic of SBAIC’s global influence and reach, and thanks to Growthzone for making the site easier for members to navigate for practical use,” said Julia Wilson, CEO and founder of Wilson Global Communications and SBAIC communications committee co-chair. “We believe our new website embraces and enlivens the SBAIC mantra: SBAIC: Growing U.S. Businesses Globally.”
The SBAIC was founded in the early 2000s by a small group of U.S. small businesses pioneering the U.S. Agency for International Development’s utilization of small businesses in global government outreach and business. SBAIC members work in every major global development sector and the typical SBAIC member has an average of 15 years of U.S. government experience.
Today, the SBAIC members works with all 20 U.S. government agencies providing foreign assistance. SBAIC represents more than 200 small U.S. businesses, of which more than half are disadvantaged businesses – meaning that they are minority, women, and veteran-owned or that they operate in historically underutilized business zones.
