SBA Seattle District Office

The U.S. Small Business Administration Seattle District Office is now accepting applications for the Emerging Leaders Initiative, a federal training initiative that specifically focuses on executives of businesses poised for growth in historically challenged communities. This is the third year the initiative will be in Seattle, which is one of 27 cities across the country offering the program.

Fifteen small business owners from the Puget Sound area will be selected to participate in this free seven-month executive education program that allows participants to set aside time to work on their business rather than in their business.

The Emerging Leaders Initiative advanced training series in Seattle will have a focus on Native American business owners. However, the program is open to small business owners and executives whose business: (1) have annual revenues of at least $300,000, (2) have been in business for at least three years, and (3) have at least one employee, other than the owner.

Those interested in participating in the Emerging Leaders Initiative in Seattle should complete the online registration form by Friday, March 22.
