Published: 03/24/2021

The SBA Georgia District Office is still accepting applications for Emerging Leaders, a free executive-level, mini-MBA style training program. The deadline for small business owners to apply is April 7, and virtual classes are scheduled to begin April 21.

The seven-month intensive, entrepreneurship education series is for small, poised-for-growth companies with potential for job creation. It includes approximately 100 hours of class time per participant and expands opportunities for small business owners with access to experienced mentors, workshops, and connections with their peers, city leaders and financial communities.

A maximum of 20 Emerging Leaders spots are available and classes will be virtually held every other week from April 21 through October 27. To participate, small businesses must:

  • Be located in Georgia 
  • Generate revenues between $250,000 and $10 million
  • Have been in business for at least three years
  • Have at least one employee besides the CEO participant
  • Attend 13 workshops and seven mentoring sessions
  • Complete required coursework and time commitments
