'Start, Run, Grow' is a new technology programme set up by the US Small Business Administration (SBA) in conjunction with Microsoft and Compaq.
The two IT suppliers will provide hardware, software and other resources worth $2 million to the scheme, plus technical support and training in 38 of the SBA's Business Information Centres nationwide. A further 16 centres will open next year.
The programme aims to offer a single source of business and computer information and support, free to small businesses. The Microsoft-Compaq involvement represents one of the SBA's largest private sector contributions ever.
