May 4th – May 8th is recognized as National Small Business Week in honor of the 26 million (Entrepreneur Magazine) small businesses in America.
President Barack Obama declared America’s small businesses “the backbone of our economy, employing half of our country’s private sector workforce and creating nearly two out of every three new jobs in our country… We are focused on injecting capital into emerging, entrepreneurial communities, supporting ventures operated by women, veterans, and underserved populations.” This year’s theme is “Dream Big, Start Small.” (SBA.GOV)

Whether you are just starting out or a seasoned veteran in the small business world, there are many resources around the country to ensure that your business is a success. One of the greatest resources for obtaining funding is finding an Angel Investor.

We would like to be a resource for your business as well by helping you prepare for the EMV migration happening this October. It’s a painless process and we can assure that you will be set up and compliant long before the deadline arrives. It’s also not as expensive as you might think, with little to no start up cost. In fact, there is a good chance we might even save you money on your current credit card processing fees.
Now, more than ever, is the time to protect your small business from any fraudulent transactions that you can be held liable for after the October deadline. Give us a call at 408.888.9663 to set up a hassle free appointment.
And have a Happy National Small Business Week from Tannen & Associates!
