SBA: Ignite Tour Blazes Across Country

WASHINGTON, D.C.Administrator Linda McMahon, the head of the U.S. Small Business Administration, today announced the SBA Ignite Tour—a national outreach campaign aimed at fueling small businesses with tools and resources to grow their companies and create more American jobs. McMahon will tour more than 60 cities in two years.

Throughout the tour McMahon will be listening to entrepreneurs, small business owners and community leaders about tax reform, regulation and access to capital; educating small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs about SBA products and services that can help them succeed; advocating for small business and being the VOICE of small business in Washington, D.C.; and encouraging small businesses to continue driving economic growth by creating jobs and helping the economy thrive.

‘The mission of the SBA is to help small businesses grow, create jobs and help our economy thrive. Over the next two years, I will literally be on the move,” McMahon said.  “I want to get to know small business owners and entrepreneurs across America and learn about the obstacles they face while growing a business. I also want to encourage entrepreneurs to tap into SBA resources for start-up and growth solutions.”

The Ignite Tour will be in Salt Lake City on June 21. Additional cities this summer include:
