Rhode Island 2011

Every Company Counts
Rhode Island has combined the efforts of more than 150 business assistance organizations under the common banner of “Every Company Counts.”
By creating a common “brand” for small business assistance and coordinating the efforts of all of the state’s assistance agencies, the program focuses on simplifying the assistance process for the small companies that most often fall through the cracks or get lost shuffling information pamphlets.
The program makes referrals to all other service providers and financing agencies, operates a robust website, and pledges to return all incoming phone calls within 24 hours.
