The SBA 8(m) Woman-Owned Small Business Program, Decoded [Infographic]

I don’t know about you, but certain aspects of the Small Business Administration’s new Woman-Owned Small Business Program (also known as the SBA 8(m) program) that took effect on Friday, February 4th seemed a bit confusing.

Things like: Is the 8(m) program related to the 8(a) program? (No.) Is my Woman-Owned Small Business in an “substantially underrepresented” NAICS code? (It depends.) How the heck do you pronounce “EDWOSB”? (Ed-wahb. The “s” is silent. Really, we checked.)

To clear up some of the confusion, we created an infographic which prints out very nicely to 11″x17″ (ledger size), featuring some background on the Woman-Owned Small Business set-aside program, as well as a flowchart to help you determine your eligibility – view the Woman-Owned Small Business Infographic:

The information is compiled from resources on the SBA’s Women-Owned Small Business page, and while it’s pretty packed with information, it doesn’t try to do everything. Instead, it’s designed to clarify some confusing points, help you figure out what questions you need to ask and let you determine if your business can benefit.
