Small Business Accelerator Program (SBAP)

WHAT IS THE SBAP?

The Small Business Accelerator Program (SBAP) was created by the Howard County African American Community Roundtable out of a desire to spur economic development and job creation in minority and under served communities.

 

It is proven that the quickest way to selfsufficiency, economic stability, and wealth creation is entrepreneurship. Yet, statistics bear the fact that many small businesses, in particularly minority and women owned businesses, start either under-capitalized and/or with limited business expertise.

BY PARTICIPATING IN THE SBAP, business owners will have the opportunity to learn from the brightest minds in business as they learn how to work “on” their business and not just “in their business. Program participants will gain access to a network of coaches that have experience in helping people create and grown successful and sustainable companies. This 8-week program will accelerate the successful development of start-up and fledgling companies by providing entrepreneurs with an array of targeted resources and services.

  • An 8 week training and business course

  • Meeting every Tuesday beginning September 29th from 6:30 to 8:30pm
