SBA Emerging Leaders Program coming to Brunswick in 2019

Eligibility 

This training is for established business owners and is not for start-ups or people who are thinking about starting a business. This is a free course for the selected participants—but does require a significant commitment of time from the participants. The Emerging Leaders Initiative advanced training series is open to small business owners and executives that:

  • Have annual revenues of at least $250,000
  • Have been in business for at least 3 years
  • Have at least one employee, other than self

Only 20 Maine small businesses will be selected to participate in this year’s program—contact Brad Currie at [email protected] or 207-248-9040 or go to https://www.interise.org/sbaemergingleaders to apply.

The program has a proven track record throughout the country having been in existence over 10 years and will be held in more than 60 locations this year.  The inaugural Maine session was held last year in Bangor.

This is a great opportunity for existing small business owners to participate in this no-cost business executive program that will help them develop a growth strategy for their business as well as participate in peer groups.
