Join us for an information session to learn how SBA's Emerging Leaders program can help you take your business to the next level. Since 2011 the St. Louis District has graduated 122 small business owners from the program.
SBA’s Emerging Leaders is an intensive executive-level training initiative to accelerate the growth of small businesses located in America’s cities. Developed by the U.S. Small Business Administration, and drawing on the experiences of advisors and business leaders in the community, this comprehensive curriculum provides the tools to catapult your company to the next level and help it emerge as a force in your community. This training is not for businesses in the start-up phase.
