SBA announces new business training program for military spouses

Classes in the new initiative will be hosted nationwide, both in-person and virtually, throughout the calendar year.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has launched a new business training program tailored to military spouses.

The Military Spouse Pathway to Business Program,” as it is known, supports the recent White House Executive Order 14100, which strengthens economic opportunity for military and Veteran spouses, caregivers, and survivors. According to the announcement, classes will be hosted nationwide, both in-person and virtually, throughout the calendar year. Military spouses with a strong business idea or considering entrepreneurship are encouraged to sign up. Participants will learn key steps for evaluating business concepts and receive the foundational knowledge required to develop a business plan.

SBA District Offices and SBA Resource Partners will offer the courses, which empower the nation’s talented military spouse entrepreneurs by providing the same counseling and training, access to capital, federal contracting, and disaster assistance available to service members and Veterans.

Military spouses interested in taking the course can sign up for an in-person or virtual class or reach out to their local Veterans Business Outreach Center or SBA District Office to obtain more information.
