About Us Overview
The Small Business Division leads the city's efforts to grow and develop small businesses.
Small, minority and women-owned businesses are vital to San Antonio's economic health, to general business expansion and to the community at large. Nevertheless at certain stages of development, these businesses need the support of a knowledgeable team.
The Small Business Economic Development Advocacy Program (SBEDA) uses the City of San Antonio’s purchasing power to build the capacity of small, minority and women-owned businesses by assigning participation goals to City contracts and eliminating barriers to competition.
