The Blue Chip Enterprise Initiative was established to identify entrepreneurs who have dealt successfully with significant challenges and to make their stories widely available as models for other small-business people. It also is a tribute to the millions of small-business owners and managers whose efforts and commitment have long been vital to the continuing health of our national economy. The Initiative is sponsored by MassMutual-The Blue Chip Company; the U.S. Chamber of Commerce; and Nation's Business magazine.
