Texas SBA® Polo Team

Jamie Demericas, Founder & President of Texas Small Business Association®, exemplifies "the American Dream" and Texas spirit of "Bigger Is Better." Since 1960 several experienced entreprenuers have attempted to operate Texas Small Business Assocation, but they continuously failed for almost 40 years. Not until 2002 when Jamie Demericas took control of Texas Small Business Association did Texas SBA assume her proper position as "essential infrastructure" for Texas society! With Mr. Demericas' vision and hard work he has expanded the role of Texas SBA® into Texas Legislation; Texas Government Procurement; International Trade by marketing Texas SBA® in 20 langauges across 90 countries; and diversity recruitment of women, minority, Hispanic, veteran, and small business owners via Texas SBA® Business Certifications.
