The U.S. Small Business Administration has teamed up with The Millennial Trains Project, traveling from Portland, Ore. to New York City, August 7-17 to take part in a coast-to-coast mobile business incubator to help inform, educate and explore opportunities in entrepreneurship.

The Millennial Trains Project promotes diverse groups of entrepreneurial, creative and civic-minded millennials to explore America’s new frontiers through on-train seminars, workshops and mentor sessions. The SBA will provide information sessions and mentorships to small business owners and entrepreneurs both on the train and at the stops along the way. Stops include the following cities: Portland, Ore., Seattle, Wash., Whitefish, Mont., St. Paul, Minn., Milwaukee, Wis., Chicago, Ill., and New York City.

This innovative project will help to engage America’s future entrepreneurs and small business leaders. Participants will be provided with SBA resources and information related to business growth, development and financial literacy, and will engage with SBA officials and resource partners offering training expertise and business speed talks.

This unique social journey will allow entrepreneurial-minded participants to collaborate and brainstorm with other individuals from around the country. There is a diversity of projects that will be of interest to the small business community and to the public in general.

SBA will connect participants with local mentors to help further build their businesses, and will feature local area resources and success stories. SBA’s participation in the Millennial Trains Project will help expand its entrepreneurial ecosystem that provides training, resources and management assistance to one million entrepreneurs and small businesses each year.
