The SBA has been an important resource for many small businesses, but now information can be accessed on the go. The SBA has recently released an app that lets people look up the information they want directly from their phone.
Developed and donated as a gift by Palo Alto Software, Inc., the SBAapp will make the search for extensive resources more efficient, whether users are starting a new business or taking an existing business to a new level, the SBA said. The app will first be available for the Apple iPhone, with future versions for other platforms.
The app will help users connect with SBA district office staff and SBA-affiliated counselors and mentors who can provide free, personalized small business assistance. It also features a built-in startup cost calculator to help estimate the costs associated with getting a business off the ground, plus an SBA partner locator to help users find SBA offices. .
Users will also have mobile access to SBA video content and social media alerts, including live updates from the SBAâ€™s YouTube channel and from SBAâ€™s Twitter feeds.
