October: SBA National Women’s Small Business Month Web Chats

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.

On Oct. 11 at 4PM, the topic is “Finding Capital,” with Jeanne Hulit, Associate Administrator, Office of Capital Access.

On Oct. 16, 3PM, participants will learn about “Contracting with the Federal Government” with John Shoraka, Associate Administrator, Office of Government Contracting and Business Development.

On Oct. 25, 2PM, the discussion is around “Business Opportunities for Young Women” with Ana Harvey, Assistant Administrator for the Office of Women’s Business Ownership.

  1. Stephanie, I’ve worked with entrepreneurs my entire professional career, and I’m convinced it’s not a lack of working capital, ideas, or excessive taxes that keep businesses from reaching their full potential — it’s a lack of intellectual capital.

    I look forward to seeing you in the chats.
