SBA's Online Business Chat - a live Q&A session with small business experts.

In recognition of National Native American Heritage Month, SBA’s November web chat will highlight Native American small businesses.  The U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Native American Affairs helps to ensure that American Indians, Native Alaskans and Native Hawaiians who want to start or grow a small business have access to SBA’s entrepreneurial development tools, and lending and contracting programs.  

WHO: Chris James, assistant administrator for the Office of Native American Affairs at the SBA, will host the November web chat on “Small Business Opportunities for Native Americans.” James will answer questions about how SBA’s programs and services can help to promote economic growth and job creation for Native Americans.

WHAT: SBA’s web chat series provides small business owners with an opportunity to discuss relevant business issues online with experts, industry leaders and successful entrepreneurs.  Chat participants have direct, real-time access to the web chats via questions they submit online in advance, and during the live session.  Participants will gain valuable information on how to participate in the program to gain increased access to government contracting opportunities.  

WHEN: November 23, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. (ET)
James will answer questions for one hour.

HOW: Participants can join the live web chat, and also post questions before the November 23rd chat. Submit your question before or during the chat discussion. No registration is needed for the web chat.
