More than half of Long Island employees work for small business employing forty-nine people or less.

These businesses and the people they employ have a direct influence on the Long Island economy and by extension, the lifestyles and wellbeing of every man, woman and child who live here. 

To safeguard and ensure an environment in which Long Island small business can thrive, the Long Island Advancement of Small Business allows them to collectively avail themselves of benefits that are often denied to them individually.  These benefits include:

  1. Increased business through an enlarged sphere of influence
  2. Reasonably price training
  3. Affordable insurance
  4. A single, audible voice that will be heard by local, state, and federal political leaders.
