This is the eighth year of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Emerging Leaders Program. The program provides 40 hours of intensive classroom instruction to executives and owners of small, poised-for-growth companies. Participants learn, among other things, how to accelerate their companies’ growth, obtain financing, diversify their markets and expand their networking. Here’s a link to the WRVO segment. Entrepreneurs from throughout Central New York can learn more here and apply to participate at www.sba.gov/EmergingLeaders.
