Since 2007 Ms. Viek has served as CEO of CAMEO, the California Association for Micro Enterprise Opportunity, a statewide network of 160 organizations and individuals committed to promoting economic opportunity and community well-being through entrepreneurial training (think mini-MBA) and microloans (under $50K).

The mission of CAMEO is to grow a healthy, vibrant, thriving environment for all entrepreneurs and start-up businesses by advancing the work of its statewide member network of non-profit training programs and community lenders.

In 2011, CAMEO members served 21,000 very small businesses that supported or created 37,000 new jobs in California. These small businesses:

1) Created a total of $1.5 billion in economic activity;

2) Increased federal taxes paid by 35% over a five-year period; and

3) Supported local economies, as local small businesses have a multiplier effect on their local economies that is twice that of big national chains.
