Patrick Rodriguez, Raleigh’s Senior Area Manager of the North Carolina District Office of the Small Business Administration, will speak with us about a promising new initiative for our community from the SBA - LGBT Business Builder. He’ll fill us in on how this program pools expertise and resources from the SBA’s district and regional offices and the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce’s 38 affiliate chapters, helping business owners leverage the chamber’s LGBT-owned business certification and tap into the SBA’s various services assisting businesses in obtaining government contracts, exporting goods, and obtaining capital right here in the Triangle.
