Excerpt from SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet’s Exit Memo

“The SBA is committed to making a difference for millions of entrepreneurs in every corner of our nation. I could not be prouder of the unparalleled efforts by our entire SBA team in communities across the country. At record lending, record investments, and record contracting levels, SBA has never performed better. It has been the honor of a lifetime to work alongside the extended SBA family to support America’s small businesses. Together, we redoubled our efforts to be smart, bold, and accessible – building smarter systems, enabling bold expansion into new markets, and ensuring the path to business ownership is accessible to all Americans.

“Small businesses are the prime drivers of American job creation, and small business owners form the backbone of our nation’s communities. Our tradition of entrepreneurship continues to attract innovators and risk takers to our shores. To maintain the vitality of our small business ecosystem, the next Administration must be as nimble and innovative as the entrepreneurs it serves. By supporting them, we ensure the American Dream remains alive for future generations.”
