Small business is the cornerstone of a thriving economy. Typically, when people hear "small business" they tend to think of "mom & pop shops." In reality, small business has a much deeper and wider reach. From start-ups to mature companies that have been operating for generations, small business is big business. Small businesses and public organizations have many of the same challenges and concerns. However, the structure, relationships and operations in a small business present them with unique challenges all their own. At Mandrake, our Small Business consultants work with clients to understand their unique situations and requirements.
