Proclaiming May as "Small Business Month" in California, Gov. Jerry Brown said that California was reaffirming its commitment to helping small businesses launch and prosper.
To do that, California will hold a series of free events at Community Colleges throughout California to help them find the resources and information they need to qualify for the Jump Start program being offered through GO-Biz, a company that offers a range of services to business owners.
Panorea Avdis, Director of the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz), said in a statement that, “California small businesses drive every facet of the California economy, and provide half of all the jobs in the state. We are proud to announce that later this month, the state is launching the new Jump Start program.”
The program is designed to help small business owners qualify for direct loans from as little as $500 to as much as $10,000. The loans aim to help recipients to reach the next level in their business. The loan application process will begin on May 9th.
Times and locations for the small business events can be found at www.CaliSmallBizMonth.com. One of the events will be held in Los Angeles on May 22nd. Details can be found below:
