The Virginia Small Business Partnership was founded in 2010 and hosted the first-ever Virginia Small Business Summit. The inaugural Summit attracted over 180 small business owners from across the Commonwealth who attended to talk about issues important to them and solutions to those specific issues.
Since then, the Virginia Small Business Partnership has been an active voice for small businesses by championing policies created by small businesses. Each year, the Virginia Small Business Summit provides a unique opportunity for small businesses to gather together and generate policy recommendations to help move Virginia forward. Our organization uses these recommendations as the basis for our small business advocacy.
The leadership of the Virginia Small Business Partnership has been invited to testify before Congress and remains a presence in Richmond during the General Assembly Session. This past year, the Virginia Small Business Partnership worked closely with Delegates Tim Hugo (R-40th) and David Ramadan (R-87th) to name September 21st as Small Business Day in Virginia. The joint resolution passed both Houses of the General Assembly unanimously.
The Virginia Small Business Partnership serves as an advocacy body for the Virginia small business community by providing an opportunity for policymakers and small businesses to work together to help advance small business policies. By hosting policy briefings and bringing Virginia leaders together with small businesses, the Virginia Small Business Partnership strives to improve the climate in Virginia for small businesses.
