OUR MISSION

The sole focus of The Small Business Collective is to provide affordable, yet transformative marketing and business development solutions and tools to small business owners. Whether you are just getting started on your path to entrepreneurship, or looking for new ways to stay competitive and relevant, we're here to help. 


THE HEART OF OUR BUSINESS

The proud daughter of two small business owners, Founder & CEO Annisa Teich, grew up spending time stocking shelves and creating displays at her mother's earth-friendly retail store, and filing invoices and stuffing envelopes at her father's local waste management company. All the while, she listened and absorbed the activity, the successes, and the struggles both parents faced as entrepreneurs, with the dream of someday following in their footsteps.

Regardless of how each of my parents' businesses fared, the brave journey of entrepreneurship was always the ultimate measurement of success for me, and I couldn't have been more proud of them both. Its impact is both personal and professional, and has truly shaped who I am today and the type of businesswoman and parent I want to be.

ANNISA TEICH
FOUNDER & CEO

Though a trained print and broadcast journalist, Annisa fell into marketing while working on college radio and music industry promotions and never looked back. A native of Northern New Jersey, she developed her skills working as in-house marketing staff and on agency projects for global brands including Sotheby's International Realty, Walmart and PepsiCo. While in Manhattan, the tech bug bit.... hard. And Annisa found unique opportunity and community in Silicon Alley, working with start-ups and late-stage tech firms, as well as a life partner in husband and West Hartford native, Greg Teich. 

Now with a family of their own, Annisa works with small businesses throughout the Hartford Metro area, applying what she has learned building growth-driven marketing and business development strategies.
