COSE: Council of Smaller Enterprises

Nominated for the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards in:

COSE is Northeast Ohio's largest small business support organization. It provides cost-effective group purchasing programs, advocacy on legislative and regulatory issues, and networking and educational resources to help Northeast Ohio's small businesses grow.

With more than 15,000 members and in existence for 39 years, COSE is a driving force in advocating for small business rights throughout the region, the state and across the nation.

COSE has a long history of fighting for the rights of all small business owners, whether it’s through group purchasing programs in healthcare, workers’ compensation and energy or advocating for specific changes in legislation or regulation.


COSE took an early leadership role starting in the 1980s, to deal with health care issues, by providing group coverage options for small businesses, and was hailed by the US President as an example of the kind of leadership needed. Today COSE provides its 15,000 small business members with a wide variety of employee benefits programs and group buying discounts for everything from office supplies to natural gas.
