SBA, USPS join to help entrepreneurs

Delivering Success

The Small Business Administration and the U.S. Postal Service unveiled a new Internet tool March 7 for small-business owners to get advice and guidance.

Delivering Success, an online video-on-demand resource for entrepreneurs, is a nationwide effort with USPS to give small businesses information through video interviews.

The interviews chronicle successful entrepreneurs’ experiences, offering their guidance and sharing insight. The interviews offer overviews of business basics, resources to help with business plans, and planning and research.

“Small businesses are the backbone of the nation’s economy, and the SBA wants to do everything we can to encourage entrepreneurship and provide business solutions and resources that are readily available,” said SBA Administrator Steven Preston.

The partnership with the SBA is an extension of video-on-demand services that USPS has used as part of its outreach to small-business owners. Experience supporting businesses and entrepreneurs through technology and the Internet is one of the resources USPS offers.

“We are working harder than ever to offer solutions to the challenges faced by today’s small businesses,” said Rod DeVar, manager of advertising and promotion at USPS. “This partnership with the SBA and the ability to reach small business owners at a time that is convenient for them is one more way the Postal Service is reaching out to meet the needs of its customers.”

Entrepreneurs have access to the video interviews, which are the ideal start-up tool for budding entrepreneurs and business owners, SBA said.
