Welcome to ISSBA

Ipswich & Suffolk Small Business Association (ISSBA) is the only business support organisation run by business owners for business owners. Established in 1986, ISSBA is non profit making and run by a committee of business owners who understand the ups and downs of being right at the coalface.

We are here to support you, by way of connecting you with other like minded business owners through our website, newsletters, full directory, annual exhibition and our lively and successful networking events. Let us help you make the most of this inspiring local business community.
