About SBUA

Small Business United, Inc. (SBU) is an Association chartered in 1992 as a State of Texas nonprofit corporation. SBU's mission is the furtherance of small to mid-sized employer needs. Additionally, SBU provides an opportunity for trade associations, interest groups, professional employer organizations (PEO's), unions, and other organizations comprised of or serving small businesses. We are dedicated to making group purchasing programs available for our association clients and their members. SBU provides its clients and members access to a vetted group of tools, discounts, welfare, benefit, and group purchasing plans.

Small businesses need information on laws, policies, and current events that affect them. They need ways to save money on products and services they use every day. And, they need the ability to attract and retain employees by offering big-business benefits like health insurance and 401(k) plans.

Small businesses can meet these needs by joining SBU and gaining access to informative resources, group purchasing discounts, group-rated health insurance options, and much more.
