“Small Business – The First Option for Innovation” By Emily Harman, Director DON OSBP

From the Editor-in-Chief Visionary: This is a very good piece by DoN OSBPs Emily Harman that articulates Navy’s policy stance and hopefully a refreshed cultural stance towards small business. I urge all small businesses interested in DoN programs to review, understand and accept the invitation to participate in the discussion and don osbpultimately the opportunities.

My only concern is the broad-based approach by DoD  and other agencies to appeal to the non-traditional small businesses in places like Silicon Valley. What about the traditional and non-traditional small businesses who already stepped up to support the Government previously and still do today? The leaders of these companies didn’t wait for someone to make it easier for them to do business, they took a risk. I would hate to see companies who invested and sacrificed get pushed aside for organizations only willing to get vested after the proverbial smoke has cleared.  -GT
