The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will host a series of four web chats during the month of October – National Women’s Small Business Month – for women considering launching their own business.
Each week, the SBA web chats will feature prominent subject experts who will guide participants on best practices for putting together business plans, navigating challenges of entering competitive markets and establishing the foundation for a successful, profitable and long-lasting company.
On Oct. 4, at 3PM participants can join “Starting & Growing Your Business” with Erin Andrew, of SBA’s Office of Entrepreneurial Development. Participants can play an observer’s role from the comfort of their computers, and also post questions beforehand.
