Senator Warren believes that small businesses are the heart and soul of our economy. The idea that anyone with a great idea and the right skills can step up and have a shot at success is central to the American story. In Massachusetts alone, small businesses employ 1.4 million people – that’s almost 47 percent of all private sector workers in the Commonwealth. Senator Warren is focused on making sure Washington works better for small businesses and their employees.
This starts with fixing policies that benefit only giant corporations and crush competition. Senator Warren knows that family cranberry growers on the Cape don’t have bank accounts in the Cayman Islands. A tech start-up in Boston or Worcester isn’t transferring its money to a foreign tax haven. Senator Warren believes that public policies from taxes to health care should help give small businesses a level playing field to compete and to succeed.
Senator Warren also believes in making sure Massachusetts small businesses are connected to federal resources and business opportunities. Please find information about some of these resources below.
Massachusetts Business Matchmaker
Each year, Senator Warren hosts a Massachusetts Business Matchmaker event, bringing together hundreds of small business owners from across the Commonwealth for a day of workshops and networking. The event is a chance for small businesses to meet directly with representatives from government agencies and prime contractors offering subcontracting opportunities.
Previous Matchmaker events have been held in Worcester, Lowell, Framingham, and Roxbury. Please check back for more information about the 2018 Massachusetts Business Matchmaker.
