SBA Emerging Leaders Initiative
The SBA Emerging Leaders Initiative is a federal training initiative that focuses on executives of businesses poised for growth in historically challenged communities.
The initiative provides executives with the organizational framework, resource network, and motivation required to build sustainable businesses and promote the economic development within urban communities. SBA’s outreach in these communities has resulted in entrepreneurial success that generates new jobs, attracts investment, and provides a more sustainable economic base in distressed areas.
The Emerging Leaders Initiative has aided over 4,000 small business owners in sustaining and growing their businesses.
Applicants accepted into the program will participate without any fees.
Over the course of seven months, participants are given the opportunity to work with experienced mentors, attend specialized workshops and develop connections with their peers, city leaders, and the financial community.
