The Small Business Administration (SBA) should be the federal agency for this small business mandate. Unfortunately, it presently does not have this mandate, the resources nor authority to carry it out. The SBA was established in 1953 “to help small business owners and entrepreneurs pursue the American dream”. It serves individual small business owners through “counseling, capital, and contracting expertise”. Its mission is to be reactive to individual entrepreneurs and small businesses, not proactive to provide the leadership for a national campaign on small business startups.
