Making rural Oklahoma aware of small business opportunities is the goal of the Rural Strong Oklahoma program from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).  Central Oklahoma will be the focus of the June 19th session at the Northeast Tech, Pryor Campus in Pryor.

Through the Rural Strong Oklahoma program SBA and USDA are collaborating to increase capital access and investment in rural America and expand businesses in rural communities.

“We are working with local governments, chambers and community organizations to reach as many aspiring and existing entrepreneurs as possible to help educate rural areas on the many ways that SBA and USDA may assist them in starting and growing their small businesses,” said Dottie Overal, Oklahoma SBA District Director.  “Whether it is through working with a local lender or business counseling, exporting, or government contracting, we can assist entrepreneurs through any stage of their business cycle.”

The SBA and USDA will be in Pryor June 19th to host round tables and training to help start, grow and expand small businesses, work together to improve investment opportunities in rural areas, improve innovation for rural technical assistance providers and provide tools for rural businesses to secure federal contracts and export products around the world.  A Resource Fair will feature organizations dedicated to helping Oklahoma small businesses grow.
