Small Business, Big Dreams is an important new resource from National CAPACD, borne out of a gap in existing data, which focuses on the success of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) entrepreneurs. The report documents the challenges faced by AAPI small businesses in low-income communities and highlights the innovative strategies deployed by the organizations that serve them. It profiles nine National CAPACD member organizations that provide culturally competent business counseling and technical assistance to low-income AAPI entrepreneurs.

The report highlights nine National CAPACD members: Asian Economic Development AssociationAsian Pacific Islander Small Business ProgramAsian Services in ActionBusiness Center for New AmericansCenter for Pan Asian Community ServicesPacific Asian Consortium in EmploymentPacific Island Knowledge 2 Action ResourcesPhiladelphia Chinatown Community Development Center, and Renaissance Economic Development Corporation.
