Entrepreneurship for All Northwest Arkansas and the Small Business Administration officially formed a strategic alliance last week to improve small business opportunities in the state and strengthen and expand small business development throughout the region.
The alliance was publicly recognized Wednesday with a ceremony and signing of a Strategic Alliance Memorandum at the EforAll Headquarters in Rogers. What the two organizations agreed to do is connect small business concerns to SBA programs.
Rodrigo Salas, EforAll’s executive director, said in a news release that the SBA offers many tools and resources but many minority business owners aren’t aware of them. This agreement will ensure more of them are aware, he said.
