Unions and Associations

Entrepreneurs are not members of unions, but they can join national or international associations such as the Association for Entrepreneurship USA, Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization, Entrepreneurs’ Organization, National Association of Entrepreneurship, and the National Entrepreneurs Association. Those who are interested in becoming a franchisee can join the American Association of Franchisees & Dealers and the International Franchise Association. These organizations provide continuing education classes, mentoring programs, networking opportunities, pitch contests, publications, and other resources. Organizations are also available at the state and regional levels. For example, the Alliance of Women Entrepreneurs provides resources to female entrepreneurs in the mid-Atlantic region. The U.S. Small Business Administration is a federal agency that offers comprehensive information on starting a business (including how to obtain start-up funding).
