In addition to the system upgrade, was involved in a landmark agreement, which will increase the user-base of the site. In 2012, the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), the Brazilian Micro and Small Business Support Service (SEBREA), and the Association of Small Business Development Center (ASBDC) signed an agreement to begin joint collaboration.
