The E200 Program is a national SBA Initiative that enables top Native American executives to participate in an extensive and comprehensive curriculum.  The focus of the program is on developing growth strategies (3-5 year plans, new markets), accessing new capital to fuel growth, mentoring and other training to target potential contracts in the local and federal government arena.  The Spokane e200 will be 1 of 27 locations nationally to be operating this year.

Since its inception, the e200 initiative has identified business owners across the countries that show a high potential for growth in underserved markets and provided them with the training, networking resources, and motivation required to expand operations and create jobs. Since the e200 program began in 2008, nearly 1000 business owners have graduated from the program.  From the survey results of the 2010 graduates, the average increase in revenue was 60%, with $7.2 million in new financing, 275 net new jobs.  Since program inception, nearly ½ of the graduates secured federal, state and local contracts of $287 million! 

The e200 training includes approximately 100 hours of classroom time per participant that provides opportunities for mentoring, networking and training.  The 13-week program will meet every two weeks in Spokane beginning April 25th and conclude on October 17, 2012.  Space is limited to 17 participants.  Watch a short video about the e200 program here.
