The SBA is funding for the 6th consecutive year, the e200 Emerging Leaders executive level training initiative. The goal of the program is to identify existing urban small businesses that show a high potential for growth and to provide them with the network, resources and motivation to build a sustainable business of size and scale. Slots are still available, and the businesses should meet the following criteria:
At least $400,000 in annual sales up to $10 million
At least 3 years in business
At least 1 employee in addition to the owner
Must be located in Detroit, Hamtramck, Highland Park, Flint, Inkster or Pontiac
Participant must be a key decision maker within the company such as the CEO, COO, CFO, Owner, or President.

The program requires participants commit 100 hours, including 40 hours of in class training, seven CEO mentoring meetings, and course work assignments. Classes begin in mid-April and run through October. The exact start date is yet to be determined. At the end of the program, participants will have a three-year strategic plan tailored to their business. They will also be introduced to a network of business resources they can tap into going forward. There is no charge to participants for the training.
