Emerging Leaders

The Aurora-South Metro SBDC is proud to host the SBA Emerging Leaders Initiative, in collaboration with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). This is a federal training program that specifically focuses on executives of businesses poised for growth in historically challenged communities. The initiative provides these executives with the organizational framework, resource network, and motivation required to build sustainable businesses and promote the economic development within urban communities. This SBA program is valued in the thousands of dollars and designed to help qualifying small businesses achieve growth to the next level.
