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.
