In October of 2017, Max graduated from the SBA’s Emerging Leaders course. It is a seven-month program revolving around small business. SBA likes to call it a ‘StreetWise MBA’. We would recommend it to any small businesses!
The SBA Emerging Leaders Initiative is a federal training initiative that specifically focuses on executives of businesses poised for growth in historically challenged communities. The initiative provides these executives with the organizational framework, resource network, and motivation required to build sustainable businesses and promote the economic development of urban communities.
SBA’s outreach in these communities has resulted in entrepreneurial success that generates new jobs, attracts investment, and provides a more sustainable economic base in distressed areas. The Emerging Leaders Initiative has aided over 4,000 small business owners in sustaining and growing their businesses.
