Fortune Small Business (FSB) was a magazine published 10 times per year from 1990 to 2009. The publication was a joint venture by The Fortune Group at Time Inc. and American Express Small Business Services. FSB was delivered to 1 million small business owners nationwide.

The magazine explored how small business owners run their companies, what technologies they use and where they spend time out of the office. FSB published lists including the FSB 100, featuring the fastest-growing small public companies, as well as the 100 Best Places to Live and Launch and America's Best Colleges for Entrepreneurs. FSB reserved its December/January issue for the annual Next Little Thing package, where it highlighted the companies, trends and entrepreneurs that would make headlines in the year ahead. Popular sections included Small-Biz Makeover and Owner's Manual, a column written by entrepreneurs who have overcome challenges in running their enterprises.

The magazine was originally called Your Company when it launched in the fall of 1990. The name changed to FSB with the November 1999 issue under Managing Editor Hank Gilman. It was closed in 2009.[1]
