Starting and Growing a Business – the SBA Advantage

Starting and Growing a Business – the SBA Advantage In-Person

Are you thinking of Starting a Business? Do you need small business assistance? The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Can Help!

Join Shelly Gillis, Outreach and Marketing Specialist with the Small Business Administration in the Massachusetts District Office, to learn how SBA programs and services can help.

This workshop aims to provide you with a better understanding of the various programs and services offered by the SBA that are available to prospective or current entrepreneurs who need assistance in starting or expanding their businesses.

We’ll discuss:

  • An overview of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)
  • The SBA Resource Partner Network – Learn how the SBDC, CWE, VBOC and SCORE can help through Business Training, & One-on-One Mentoring
  •  Access to Capital – SBA backed Loan Programs

Let the Small Business Administration (SBA), help you get “procurement-ready” to market your firm’s products and services to the Federal Government through our Resource Partners Network. Federal Government Contracting can represent a very profitable market for your business — but it can also be extremely complex to get started and thrive.

The Small Business Administration and its resource partners can help you determine if your business is ready for federal contracting by assessing your business for:

  • Marketability​
  • Structure and experience​
  • Systems and capacity
  • Ability to find contracts
