SBA, FDIC Team Up to Aid Aspiring Businesses
A new curriculum to support business owners through training, technical assistance and mentoring has been developed by the SBA and FDIC.
Money Smart for Small Business provides an introduction to day-to-day business organization and planning and is written for entrepreneurs with limited or no prior formal business training.
Each of the 10 instructor-led modules in the curriculum provides financial and business management for business owners and includes a scripted instructor guide, participant guide and overhead slides. The FDIC will host an online town hall for potential training alliance partners in the months ahead, according to the agency.
“The FDIC is a vital ally in our efforts to help small business owners start, grow and create jobs” said SBA Administrator Karen Mills.
The new curriculum is the latest offering in the FDIC’s Money Smart program, which launched more than 10 years ago.
