SBA and SBA’s Office of Women’s Business Ownership are excited to celebrate Pride month and participate in a conversation with leaders from the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and highlight LGBTQ+ owned small businesses.
Equity is a top priority across SBA, including for our LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs and small business owners. There are 1.4 million LGBTQ+ owned businesses in communities across this country and they already generate more than $1.7 trillion dollars in U.S. economic impact and support tens of thousands of jobs – and that number continues to grow. It is critical for SBA and its partners to continuing supporting the LGBTQ+ community and ensure they are connected to capital, technical assistance, and other resources as they start and grow their businesses.
This conversation will include remarks from senior leadership from SBA and the Office of Women’s Business Owners
