SBA’s Mobile App helps entrepreneurs find local resources so they can start or grow their business through professional mentors, workshops and introductions to funding or contract opportunities. SBA’s resource partner network includes 10,000+ business mentors, 3,000+ locations, and hundreds of procurement centers and commercial lenders throughout the US. Aspiring entrepreneurs can use the built-in startup cost calculator to get their plans in action before meeting with a mentor or attending a business planning workshop. SBA videos and official notices are also available via the app so entrepreneurs have info on-the-go.
