Are you excited by the idea of helping to support $39 billion in small business financing and setting proper conditions to stimulate America's economic growth?

SBA has been a leader in small business development for more than 60 years.

In an increasingly globalized economy, we tackle challenges confronted by the small business community across geographic boundaries.

Although times have changed since the SBA was founded in 1953, the Agency's mission-to promote the growth of small business-has not.

Today, SBA is more vital than ever.

We work in collaboration with partner organizations and using cutting-edge technologies and well-tested best practices to multiply our impact on small businesses.

America's 28 million small businesses are the engine of job creation and economic growth in this country, creating nearly two out of every three new jobs in the United States and employing over half the nation's workforce.

SBA ensures that these businesses have the tools and resources required to start and expand their operations, and create jobs that support a growing economy and strengthen America's middle class.

The SBA and entrepreneurs drive American competitiveness and help grow the economy.

Picture yourself at SBA.
