The SBA Indiana District Office recently held a graduation ceremony for its Emerging Leaders Class of
2017.  This is the third year the Indiana District Office has offered the program, coordinated by
SBA Indiana District Office Economic Development Specialist and Emerging Leaders Program
Manager Sharon Harvey. 

Emerging Leaders is a free executive training program hosted by the SBA Indiana District Office and state-wide local partners.  Indiana District Director likens the intensive course to a "mini-MBA style program," which helps established entrepreneurs from throughout the state take the next step forward towards success.

"The goal of Emerging Leaders is to provide small business owners with the knowledge and resources they need to build a sustainable business," Poynter says.  "Emerging Leaders teaches entrepreneurs how to think strategically so they can expand their businesses on a global scale."

This year’s class showcases the diversity of small businesses in Indiana, with representatives of such industries as tech, environmental and urban planning, catering, manufacturing, medical, and accounting services.  To see this year's graduating class, please watch the attached slideshow.  For more information on SBA services, resources, and events in Indiana, sign up for District Office updates at .  You can also follow us on Twitter @SBA_Indiana .
