SBA's Emerging Leaders InitiativeIn 2008, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) started the Emerging Leaders Initiative, a seven-month program targeted at small businesses. The program’s purpose is to provide intense executive training sessions in order to create sustainability and economic development. These sessions are meant to educate the business owner on entrepreneurship, job creation and growth opportunities. This year, the SBA expanded the program’s participating communities by adding three new cities. Classes begin this May!
