About the Small Business Initiative

Under the direction of Treasurer Goldberg, SBI was designed to provide a range of relevant, important information that is often needed when starting a small business for the first time. Typically, it is challenging to find resources and advisors that can help lead to success. The toolkit and webinars offered by SBI provide valuable educational materials on how to plan, maintain, and grow a successful small business.
