Small Business Advocacy

Given the importance of small businesses to the national economy, especially as a driver for creating and sustaining jobs, the Travelers Institute believes public policies should encourage entrepreneurship. Small Business – Big Opportunity®, the Travelers Institute’s small business advocacy project, helps promote small business success by convening business owners across the country with industry experts to explore solutions to their everyday challenges, such as business continuity planning, access to capital and cybersecurity. The Travelers Institute has collaborated with recognized small business advocates such as the U.S. Small Business Administration, the Federal Reserve Bank and the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), as well as community banks and angel investors.
