U.S. Bank Backs Small Businesses In Iowa By Sponsoring Small Business Development Center Online Training

Stocks in this article: USB

U.S. Bank, the fifth-largest commercial bank in the United States and advisor to small businesses nationwide, has stepped up to support small businesses in Iowa by sponsoring some of the Iowa Small Business Development Center’s (SBDC) online workshops.

These online workshops are free to small business owners and cover a number of topics including financial planning, creating a business plan, business management, technology development, marketing, regulatory compliance and international trade. These interactive multimedia workshops provide in-depth strategies, tools, processes and solutions that can help business owners grow and manage their business.

The U.S. Bank sponsored online training workshops for the Iowa Small Business Development Center can be found on the Iowa SBDC website at http://www.iowasbdc.org/online-resources/videos-podcasts under the Virtual Advisor link. A Spanish version of most of the workshops is also available by choosing the Virtual Advisor en Español link.

U.S. Bank small business experts will also be available at some live workshops or seminars led by the Iowa SBDC.

“Small businesses seek a trusted source to help them build capital and grow,” said Steve Caves, community banking division president for U.S. Bank. “The local SBDC and U.S. Bank are key partners in helping strengthen small businesses by connecting them with resources and information.”

The Iowa SBDC is hosted by Iowa State University’s College of Business and can be found online at www.iowasbdc.org. SBDCs are partially funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and provide technical assistance to small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs. They support business performance and sustainability and enhance the creation of new business entities. These small businesses in turn foster local and regional economic development through job creation and retention as a result of the extensive, one-on-one, in-depth counseling, training, and other specialized services they receive from the SBDCs. SBDC programs nationwide are made up of a unique collaboration of SBA, state and local governments, and private sector funding resources.

U.S. Bank is one of the strongest and most successful banks for small businesses in the nation. It provides financing, education and banking services that include credit cards and Small Business Administration (SBA) loans. The company regularly reports the economic and business sentiment of small business owners, most recently with the 2013 U.S. Bank Small Business Annual Survey. Business owners can find resources at www.usbankconnect.com and follow Connect on Twitter @usbankconnect and on Facebook at facebook.com/usbankconnect.

U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB), with $355 billion in assets as of March 31, 2013, is the parent company of U.S. Bank, the fifth-largest commercial bank in the United States.
