Did you know that May is Small Business Month?
On Wednesday, May 21, the U. S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will present a free workshop for the public in the Central Park Library Redwood Room from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Small business owners and prospective small business entrepreneurs will learn how the programs of the SBA can help them start, manage, and grow their companies.
Experts from the SBA and its resource partners will provide practical information on SBA’s three main program areas:
management training and counseling
access to financing
access to federal government contracting opportunities.
Program benefits, eligibility requirements, and application procedures also will be covered.
Before the workshop begins, Santa Clara Mayor Patricia Mahan will read a proclamation declaring May 2008 as Small Business Month in the City of Santa Clara, and calling on “residents of the City to join in recognizing the contributions of small business owners to the community.”
If you are thinking about starting a small business, or if you simply want to expand your existing business, this SBA workshop is for you! To sign up for this free event, stop by the Library’s Reference Desk or call (408) 615-2900.
