To help women who are ready to start or expand a small business, the U.S. Small Business Administration is offering a series of four web chats during October, which is National Women’s Small Business Month.
Each week in October, SBA’s web chat series will feature experts who will give advice to women on how to put together business plans, navigate the challenges of entering competitive markets and establish the foundation for a successful, profitable enterprise.
Here’s a list of the web chats and the corresponding links:
- Oct. 4, 3 p.m. ET: “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.”
