Small business suppliers and supplier-hopefuls, rejoice! The SBA just announced they are launching a Supply Chain Training Initiative in partnership with Connecticut-based United Technologies (who itself just announced it will invest $19 billion into hiring US small business suppliers over the next five years). According to the official press release, the program will include “events, webinars, and procurement conferences, all in an effort to break down barriers and prepare small businesses to compete for supply chain opportunities with large businesses across America.”

While you wait for this initiative to fully launch, check out our supplier resources and get educated on business credit for suppliers.
