Fearless Launches SBA Business Guide for Entrepreneurs

Fearless is continuing to work with the Small Business Administration to modernize and streamline SBA.gov and its tools.

In January we launched the new SBA.gov homepage and earlier this summer we unveiled the new SBA Lender match website. The third step in our SBA modernization contract is rolling out the SBA Business guide.

We worked in conjunction with Bixal to give the SBA modernized guides on starting and running a business.

“This section of the site was transformed from a large, difficult to operate wiki of information, into an easily navigable, colorful guide sorted in a chronological way to provide prospect small business owners with the specific information that they need,” said Fearless engineer and tech lead on this project, Jonathan King.

Fearless founder Delali Dzirasa said the business guide updates is part of Fearless’ goal to connect small businesses in the country to each other and the Small Business Administration.

“Overall, I think prospective business owners and owners of existing small business will much more easily find information on how to plan, launch, manage, and grow their business,” King said of the new business guide.

As part of our commitment to helping entrepreneurs and small businesses like ourselves, Fearless will soon launch a modernization that will help entrepreneurs looking for financial guidance and help from SBA.

Our updates will “provide information on borrowing capital from an SBA partner lender, and those partner lenders and other prospect partners can find information on how to connect with the SBA.”

Fearless Launches Revamped HUBZone Map to Support HUBZone Companies Across the US

Fearless is taking the next step in streamlining how HUBZone companies do business with the Federal Government. With the launch of the new, user-friendly HUBZone map, Fearless has made it easier than ever for companies to see if they or their employees are in designated HUBZones. The HUBZone Map is the continuation of Fearless’ SBA HUBZone Program Modernization contract.

The Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone) program helps small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities.. A company’s HUBZone certification is dependent on several key factors: in order to qualify for the program, the company’s principal office must be located in a HUBZone, and at least 35% of their employees must reside in HUBZones as well. In order to help verify these two important locational factors, Fearless has created a modern and easy to use map that allows companies to quickly find HUBZones across the country.
