With more women taking part in business programs, the benefits of working with the Small Business Administration could become clearer. When it comes to business opportunities for women, there are multiple options to consider. The SBA could be just the beginning, seeing as it collaborates with other entities, including the National Women's Business Council.
Late last month, the SBA announced that the NWBC would gain two new members. Both of these appointees have business experience: One is National Association of Women Business Owners head Jen Earle, and the other is Rose Wang, founder of both the IT firm Binary Group and the resource iBizWomen.com.
As the press release stated, the appointment is more than just a symbol of more progress. Earle and Wang will each take part in the Council's business duties for the next few years. These include tasks with possible federal importance, such as working with the president.
SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet extended her welcome to the newest members in the statement as well.
"The addition of these dynamic women business leaders will add fresh perspectives and credible voices to the NWBC as it continues its work advancing policies that are vital to our nation's economy and small business community," she said. "This work continues to be integral to our ongoing efforts to scale up SBA support for America's 9.8 million women business owners."
Following this lead, female business owners can look for financial programs perfectly suited to launching and maintaining their own company. One of these is the Community Advantage program, which can offer loans as high as $250,000 in value to for-profit businesses in the manufacturing, distribution, and service sectors, among others.
