About Us

Small Business Strong was born in the spring of 2020 when public and private community partners saw the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across Massachusetts. Over 17 organizations compiled of over 100 individuals quickly joined together with a common mission: to stand together in actionable support of small businesses in dire need of resources - the most critically effected: women and minority owned. As your peers, friends, and supporters, we passionately provide the expertise you need not only because it is the right thing to do, but because it's a part of the moral framework of who we are in Boston and across the Commonwealth. We believe in the entrepreneurial spirit of Massachusetts and we know we can ignite commercial progress when we work together. There will be no going back, only forward together in this new world and we want to ensure that your business is a critical part of it.
