Small Business Adminstration (SBA) 8a program

Presented by: Holly Boehme 
Business Opportunity Specialist | 8(a) Business Development Program 
U.S. Small Business Administration • Seattle District Office 

Holly will provide an overview of the 8a program and a Question and Answer session. 

In order to help small, disadvantaged businesses compete in the marketplace, the SBA created the 8(a) Business Development Program. 

What is the 8(a) Business Development Program? 
• The 8(a) Business Development Program is a business assistance program for small disadvantaged businesses. The 8(a) Program offers a broad scope of assistance to firms that are owned and controlled at least 51% by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. 
• The 8(a) Program is an essential instrument for helping socially and economically disadvantaged entrepreneurs gain access to the economic mainstream of American society. The program helps thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs to gain a foothold in government contracting. 
• Participation in the program is divided into two phases over nine years: a four-year developmental stage and a five-year transition stage. 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
