Harvest Business Advisors works with Small Business Administration (SBA) lenders for many of our transactions. Our entire team keeps up-to-date on all SBA programs and announcements to better serve our business brokerage clients and our business valuation clients.

We’d like to share this recent announcement from the SBA about addition of two new modules to their “ Money Smart for Small Business ” curriculum. The two new modules are Banking Services and Building Strong Credit.

“Money Smart for Small Business aims to help small business owners and entrepreneurs understand how a strong banking relationship can help them achieve their vision,” said Elizabeth Ortiz, Deputy Director for FDIC’s Consumer and Community Affairs.  “The relationship between banks and small businesses is symbiotic: when one succeeds, so does the other.”
