SBA to host web chats for women entrepreneurs
The U.S. Small Business Administration is hosting four web chats next month, offering advice for women starting and growing a small business.
Each online discussion features experts who will offer tips on creating business plans, addressing the challenges of breaking into a competitive market and establishing a foundation for a profitable business, the agency said. The online workshops will take place each week in October, which is National Women’s Small Business Month.
Here is a list of the web chats:
Oct. 4, 3 p.m.: "Starting and Growing Your Business" with Erin Andrew, of SBA's Office of Entrepreneurial Development. Participants can join the live web chat, and also post questions beforehand by visiting www.sba.gov, and clicking on the web chat event under "What's New."
