COSE 50th anniversary


COSE has been the leading small business expert organization in Greater Cleveland for more than 50 years. Over the decades, COSE has grown to comprise thousands of members. The collective voice of its members allows COSE to offer cost-effective purchasing programs, advocacy on legislative and regulatory issues and networking and educational events to assist in the expansion of the small business community of Greater Cleveland.

To celebrate COSE's 50th anniversary, we are celebrating YOU. Without your entrepreneurship, dedication to making Cleveland the place where you do business, and connection with your community, there wouldn’t be a COSE. That’s why we’re featuring your stories – launches, triumphs, motivations and more in snackable videos that we will be rolling out weekly throughout the year. This isn't about us, it’s about you, and we can’t wait to tell your stories.
