Buffalo Niagara’s small businesses are essential to both the future of the economy and the strength of our communities. Small business owners are responsible for a wide and changing range of responsibilities on a daily basis. Collaboration, and the sharing of best practices, will ensure that these businesses are well-represented when important decisions are made.
Join BNP, and strategic partners the National Federation of Independent Businesses and the Western New York Chamber Alliance, as we bring leaders together to collaborate, strategize and support the future of the small business community in our region.
The BNP is defining a small business as one with 25 employers or fewer for the ILF.
