Join the U.S. Small Business Administration to celebrate Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Heritage Month! The event will feature an armchair discussion with Jennifer Kim, SBA Associate Administrator for the Office of Field Operations; Michael Fong, SBA Regional Administrator for Region 10; Chiling Tong, President and CEO of the National Asian/Pacific Islander American Chamber of Commerce & Entrepreneurship; and Dr. Guofang Wang, Co-Owner of Everest Medical Group in Upper Darby, PA.

The discussion will focus on the importance of financial wellness, creating generational wealth through business ownership, and increasing equity and access to opportunities to help uplift and support Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander-owned small businesses. The panel will also discuss SBA initiatives and resources that support small business recovery, new AANHPI startups seeking to launch, and existing AANHPI-owned small businesses as they pivot and grow in a post-COVID world.
