Chicago is the city of broad shoulders, and because of this fact, the city offers a number of programs to support small business owners. Available this Spring, starting April 3, 2017, the Regional Office of the Small Business Administration (SBA) will sponsor their Emerging Leaders Program. This program helps small business owners improve their business operations, as well as introduces them to the vital services available from the SBA and provides guidance for becoming a government contractor. Business owners seeking to expand their services beyond the private sector should consider this program. Applications are being accepted now. Please contact the SBA Regional Office located at 500 W. Madison Street, Chicago, IL and become a part of the network! Their number is (312) 353-0357.
The SBA Emerging Leaders Initiative is a federal training initiative that specifically focuses on executives of businesses poised for growth in historically challenged communities. Learn more from the video below.
