Orlando, FL (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
Few people expected the entire Affordable Care Act to be upheld by the Supreme Court, so now companies of all sizes are scrambling to prepare for its implementation. ActSeed is helping the smallest companies put the law in context and prepare for its impact, starting with an informational article on ActSeed.com and a service to direct startups and "solopreneurs" to affordable health insurance and commercial liability insurance plans.
While the Small Business Administration (SBA) defines a small business very broadly in terms of how many employees a company has, this law will affect different segments of the small business community in very different ways. ActSeed is focused on providing guidance to startups in the most nascent stage where employment is usually less than 20 people and the company is less than five years old. Often, a company in the ActSeed community starts as one self-employed proprietor, yet they still need insurance.
"Over the past decade, we have seen the smallest of small businesses cut back on health insurance benefits or eliminate them altogether," said Bill Attinger, CEO of ActSeed. "While this law continues to be part of election year politics and the ultimate shape of health care reform may pivot again, the people building young companies want to focus on creating products, providing services and serving customers. ActSeed will help them frame the issues and navigate the uncertainty by sharing relevant information and services."
ActSeed is a national online community for startups, early stage companies and small businesses, primarily focused in the US. Since 2009, ActSeed has been helping reduce the unacceptably high failure rate of early stage businesses by connecting thousands of entrepreneurs to tools and resources critical for growing their businesses.
