Underserved Audiences
For more than fifty years, the SBA has helped entrepreneurs start, grow and succeed in their business ventures. For all kinds of business owners across the country – including in traditionally underserved communities – SBA provides resources and access to capital they need to flourish. Here's how SBA helps entrepreneurs and business owners who are:  
  • Minorities: Interested in government contracting? The 8(a) Business Development Program helps small, disadvantaged businesses compete in the marketplace.
  • Women: From registering your business to hiring your first employee, SBA is here to help you launch your small business. 
  • Native Americans: SBA has opportunities and programs designed to help Native American entrepreneurs start and manage their businesses.
  • Veterans: From the military world to the business world, SBA has customized resources to help our veterans succeed.
  • 50+ Entrepreneurs: Are you nearing retirement and exploring new opportunities? SBA has information and tools to help "encore" entrepreneurs start and run their businesses.
  • People with Disabilities: Explore resources and links to help disabled people establish and manage small businesses.
The online Learning Center also offers free, self-paced courses tailored to your business type and more, so you can get the online training you need, when you need it. 
SBA is in the business of businesses – and in making sure our diverse entrepreneurs across the U.S. access the resources and capital they need to find success in their ventures.
