Small Business Administration

The U.S. Small Business Administration was set up by Congress in 1953 to “aid, counsel, assist, and protect … the interests of small business concerns.” Since then, they’ve significantly grown, and they now provide a wide range of programs to encourage small enterprise. The website has information on virtually every aspect of operating a small business and details funding options and requirements for becoming a government contractor.

Their business blog is relatively hidden on the site — there’s so much information the blog portion tends to hide. Recent posts advise small to medium businesses on topics like financial tips for starting a business from home, training your first employees, and the biggest marketing mistakes new entrepreneurs tend to make.
