Join Us for Our Next Conference Call/Web Chat:

Small Business Administration (SBA) 101

The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders will host a conference call/webinar in collaboration with the SBA. Representatives from SBA will speak about their efforts to support small business owners and entrepreneurs, including:

  • Providing business owners access to capital
  • Opportunities in government contracting
  • Access to entrepreneurial education and counseling
  • Disaster assistance for business owners, homeowners, and renters.

Small businesses account for nearly two of three new jobs created today. AAPI-owned businesses, like other minority-owned businesses, continue to grow and provide employment opportunities, contributing to the recovery and growth of the current economy.  Hear from officials from the Small Business Administration about their work to protect the interests of AAPI-owned small businesses, and ask questions about accessing these federal resources.
