The U.S. Small Business Administration’s S.C. District has partnered with SCRA to form a Strategic Alliance Memorandum.
The alliance is expected to further economic development through entrepreneurship, educational opportunities and access to capital and technical assistance.
“We recognize the common goals of SCRA and SBA in helping start, maintain and expand small businesses,” R. Gregg White, S.C. SBA district director, said in a statement. “This is an opportunity to leverage the resources of both organizations for the benefit of South Carolina small businesses.”
Bob Quinn, SCRA’s executive director, joined White in signing the memorandum at the Applied Technologies Center in Summerville.
“By supporting entrepreneurs, small businesses and early-stage companies, we are creating opportunities for the citizens of South Carolina,” Quinn said. “We are excited to formalize our relationship with the S.C. SBA and look forward to our future collaborations with their team.”
SCRA, chartered in 1983, is a public nonprofit that supports entrepreneurs and academic research and connects industry to innovators.
