“These webinars will provide entrepreneurs with access to quality resources that will help them to start up and grow their own businesses,” said State Treasurer Deborah B. Goldberg. “By providing this kind of support from the beginning, we will help ensure greater opportunities for them, their local communities and the state’s economy overall.”
In November 2022, Treasurer Goldberg announced a newly designed Small Business Resource Toolkit website through SBI. The toolkit provides access to comprehensive resources and materials for small business owners and future businesspersons in Massachusetts.
Under the direction of Treasurer Goldberg, SBI was designed to provide a range of relevant, important information, often needed, when facing the enormous challenge of starting a small business for the first time. Typically, it is challenging to easily find the resources and advisors that can help lead to success. The website and webinars offer valuable educational materials on how to plan, maintain, and grow a successful small business.
