Welcome to SMBX! We are a dual-sided marketplace that empowers small business owners and the communities that love them. We created a new asset class called the Small Business Bond which is a new way for people to invest in the small businesses that they love.

A Bond is like a loan, but instead of borrowing funds from a bank, a small business is borrowing funds from everyday investors all across the country.

Anyone with a U.S. bank account or credit card can choose the businesses that they want and purchase available Bonds, and they’ll receive monthly principal plus interest payments.
Small Business Bonds are designed to amortize over time. So that means, as more of the principal is paid back, the interest rate on the Bond is only applied to the remaining principal.
We’ve structured these payouts to be even over the life of the Bond so each month an investor can expect the same payout amount and the small business owner knows exactly how much to budget.

The Small Business Bond is the future of finance. It gives small businesses a better way to raise funds, and it gives people more control over their money to create wealth locally.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is the federal agency for granting U.S. patents and registering trademarks. In doing this, the USPTO fulfills the mandate of Article I, Section 8, Clause 8, of the Constitution that the legislative branch “promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.” The USPTO registers trademarks based on the commerce clause of the Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). Under this system of protection, American industry has flourished. New products have been invented, new uses for old ones discovered, and employment opportunities created for millions of Americans. The strength and vitality of the U.S. economy depends directly on effective mechanisms that protect new ideas and investments in innovation and creativity. The continued demand for patents and trademarks underscores the ingenuity of American inventors and entrepreneurs. The USPTO is at the cutting edge of the nation’s technological progress and achievement.

The USPTO advises the president of the United States, the secretary of commerce, and U.S. government agencies on intellectual property (IP) policy, protection, and enforcement; and promotes the stronger and more effective IP protection around the world. The USPTO furthers effective IP protection for U.S. innovators and entrepreneurs worldwide by working with other agencies to secure strong IP provisions in free trade and other international agreements. It also provides training, education, and capacity building programs designed to foster respect for IP and encourage the development of strong IP enforcement regimes by U.S. trading partners.
