The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) supports Twin Cities entrepreneurs to start and grow new business with a variety of resources and services- but so many entrepreneurs don't know about SBA and how we can help! Entrepreneurs should know all the tools in the toolbox that exist to help them start and grow new ventures- and SBA is one of those tools that everyone should know about and when to call. Our session, comprised of a diverse panel of SBA’s Minnesota District Office team, will help entrepreneurs learn about SBA’s programs, ranging from SBA’s capital access programs to COVID-19 relief for small businesses to free trainings on a variety of entre-related topics to our Emerging Leaders cohort for new businesses. We will also share how SBA provides support to minority and women-owned new small businesses in conjunction with our Resource Partners, with a Q&A at end of the session.
