Small Business Resiliency Network

Small Business Resiliency Network

CACCWA’s Small Business Resiliency Network Team (SBRN) performs outreach to Cambodian-American small businesses. As our community navigates through the ongoing economic crisis, the SBRN strives to help local Khmer businesses grow, succeed, and overcome hardships. We are partnered with the Department of Commerce and the Department of Labor & Industries in this effort.

Our goal is to help local Khmer small businesses bridge barriers, grow, and thrive. We support small businesses and nonprofit organizations by providing education, sharing resources, and advising them based on specific business needs. Our network spans across King, Pierce, Thurston, Clark, and Snohomish counties. Additionally, our team provides personalized technical support, such as help with applying to grants or meeting safety regulations. Our staff is on standby to help identify resources, clarify information, and provide direct assistance.

This year, we aim to build stronger relationships with local Khmer small business owners and continue expanding our outreach. If you are a small business owner interested in learning more or joining our network, please fill out our questionnaire. You can also see our team’s websites below for more information about each department.
