SBA’s Emerging Leaders Initiative To Help Growing Entrepreneurs Opens For 2019 Recruitment

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) New Mexico District announces the launch of the 2019 Emerging Leaders Initiative for executives of small businesses poised for growth in emerging markets.

Recruitment for the 2019 training cycle is ongoing and will close March 27.

Interested small business owners can learn more regarding eligibility, how to apply, class schedules, and location at, or by contacting SBA New Mexico District Office Deputy District Director, Ivan Corrales, at or 505.248.8227.

“I am proud of the success the Emerging Leaders and the impact the training has made in helping to take small businesses to the next level,” said Allen Gutierrez, Associate Administrator of the SBA’s Office of Entrepreneurial Development. “Since its inception in 2008, Emerging Leaders has trained more than 5,000 small business owners, creating more than 6,500 jobs, generating more than $300 million in new financing, and securing more than $3 billion in government contracts.”

The SBA’s Emerging Leaders program provides free entrepreneurship education and training for executives of small businesses that are potential job creators. This intensive executive entrepreneurship series includes nearly 100 hours of classroom time that is delivered over the course of seven months.

Participants are provided with the opportunity to work with a network of experienced coaches and mentors, attend specialized workshops, and develop connections with their peers, city leaders, and the financial community in order to build sustainable businesses that promote economic development within their communities.
