Join the U.S. Small Business Administration for a virtual armchair discussion to celebrate Rural Entrepreneurship! The event will feature a live webinar panel discussion with Allen Thomas, Regional Administrator for SBA Region IV, Terri Billups, Acting Director/Deputy Director for SBA Office of Rural Affairs, and Morgan Beavers, Co-Owner of Graylee Construction and Demolition in Austin, Arkansas.

The discussion will focus on the importance of financial wellness, creating generational wealth through business ownership, and increasing equity and access to opportunities to help uplift and support Rural-owned small businesses. The panel will also discuss SBA initiatives and resources that support small business recovery, new Rural startups seeking to launch, and existing Rural-owned small businesses as they pivot and grow in a post-COVID world, a priority of the Biden-Harris Administration and SBA Administrator Isabella Casillas Guzman.
