CFE engages with small businesses in two major ways: it advocates for small businesses in the court of public opinion and in government; and it has built a community of small business owners and their employees, advocates, and entrepreneurs that come together to learn from each other and to promote their common interests.
CFE is a project of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business federation. More than 96% of U.S. Chamber members are small businesses with 100 employees or less.
CFE promotes free enterprise in the court of public opinion and in D.C. Last year, the campaign built a software application to let its small business community email their congressional candidates. Then, it launched the Center for Entrepreneurship, the first organization that advocates for entrepreneurs in D.C.
