SBA Official to Address SSTI Conference

September 01, 2010

Regular readers of the Digest know that over the last year, SBA has launched a set of new programs and initiatives, including support for cluster development, changes to the SBIC application process, the revival of the FAST program, and a request for information on mentoring and entrepreneurship education for high-growth companies. At SSTI's 14th Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, Sean Greene, SBA's Associate Administrator for Investment and Special Advisor for Innovation, will provide an update on what he and his colleagues at SBA have been working on and are planning for the future. With SBA pursuing a larger role in issues involving tech-based economic development, this session will provide an excellent chance to understand what lies ahead for SBA — and the opportunities presented for regional innovation strategies.
