SBA and SBA’s Office of Women’s Business Ownership are excited to celebrate Pride month and participate in a conversation with leaders from the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and highlight LGBTQ+ owned small businesses.
There are 1.4 million LGBTQ+ owned businesses in the U.S. that generate more than $1.7 trillion dollars in US economic impact and support tens of thousands of jobs – and that impact continues to grow. SBA is focused on ensuring equal access to to capital and resources to all entrepreneurs and this conversation will focus on challenges faced by LGBTQ+ entrepreneurs and how SBA, NLGCC, and other organizations can continue breaking down barriers and supporting these entrepreneurs.
