Get in the Conversation: New Grads with big Small Business Ideas
Are you getting ready to graduate with a plan that includes starting your own business? You don’t have to go it alone! The SBA (Small Business Administration) and the U.S. Department of Education plan to host a Twitter Q & A Session on April 25 at 2pm EDT. This discussion will connect soon-to-be grads or recent grads to resources to help them startup, succeed and create a new business.
Karen Mills (Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration) and U.S. Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan will host a question and answer session that is designed to get young minds talking together about future businesses. Another interesting discussion will include the Income-Based Repayment (IBR) Plan, which supports young college grads that are looking to start a business. It will also apply to those of you wanting to join a startup, or work in a public service job by making your Federal student loan repayment manageable. the payments are more affordable by using a sliding scale to determine how much you can afford to pay on your Federal loans. The hope is that you will be less afraid to jump in and get started on your dreams. Check out the student start up plan to see if you qualify.
