Welcome to the Office of Small Business Development

The City of Milwaukee's Office of Small Business Development (OSBD) was created to assist and protect the interest of emerging and small business concerns. 

We take steps to promote and encourage full and open competition in the City of Milwaukee so emerging businesses may successfully compete in a free market as independent business owners.  The staff has a communication network with each of the city's contracting departments to ensure that the opportunities in commodity procurement, construction, service orders and professional services are available to small and emerging businesses.

We work to enhance the emerging small business community by maximizing support services, contract opportunities, and financial resources to compete in the public and private sector markets.  We also work to establish mentor-protégé relationships between small businesses and those businesses in the mainstream marketplace.
