SBA, Small Business Majority collaborate on webinar series


The U.S. Small Business Administration and Small Business Majority are co-sponsoring a new webinar series, “The Bottom Line,” a collaborative educational series on SBA tools and resources to help small businesses leverage provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act and other recent federal legislation.

SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman signed the agreement Monday in a ceremony along with John Arensmeyer, founder and CEO of the Washington, D.C.-based advocacy group Small Business Majority.

“This collaborative training series comes at a critical time as small businesses continue to navigate inflation, supply chain disruptions, and workforce challenges,” Guzman said in a press release. “Through these webinars, members of the small business community will be connected to a diverse suite of SBA and resource partner tools and strategies.” Guzman said the alliance will expand and deepen the SBA’s outreach network nationwide.

The first webinar in the series is scheduled for Sept. 6, titled, “How to Combat Inflation as a Small Business Owner.” This session will provide an overview of operational strategies, funding options, and resources that can help business owners deal with inflation and will be a partner collaboration with organizations like the Urban League, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, and Prosperity Now.

“Small business ownership is a potent force that can help address economic inequality and build dignity,” Arensmeyer said. “A healthy entrepreneurial ecosystem provides an innovative pathway for women, people of color, young adults, veterans, disabled people, immigrants, and rural residents to enter the mainstream American economy and build income and independence.”
