The U.S. Small Business Administration is planning to launch an online entrepreneurship learning platform with a focus on women entrepreneurs looking to scale their businesses. Despite accounting for more than one-third of U.S. businesses, women entrepreneurs still lag in sales and revenue. This cloud-based learning initiative will provide the resources, including peer-to-peer learning, mentoring, and networking opportunities to help entrepreneurs grow their business. Entrepreneurs are required to complete a registration form in order to gain access to this resource. To create a basic user account, entrepreneur will be asked to provide basic contact information (name, email address, and whether the entrepreneur is currently in business). SBA also proposes to collect additional information (e.g., the type of industry the entrepreneur is engaged in, gender, and race or ethnicity) that is intended to help SBA determine who is using the platform and the scope of their participation, as well as to develop a platform that would enable the user to tailor delivery of content to meet their needs.
Title: Women's Digitalization (Entrepreneur Learning) Initiative Registration.
