On October 1, KYCC Community Economic Development‘s Small Business Development Program (SBDP) hosted it’s first Korean language Small Business Summit. Planning for the summit began with CBB Bank in March of 2022. This Small Business Summit is the first of its kind from the SBDP. The purpose of the program is to educate small business owners in relevant business topics to aid in recovery from the pandemic. The Summit covered four presentation topics for small business owners including human resources, marketing, commercial lending, and SBA products.


KYCC’s Small Business Development program offers workshops and 1-on-1 counseling, amongst various other business services, for Korean American and Koreatown businesses. As the Small Business Administration’s Community Navigator Pilot Program partner and a member of Asian Pacific Islander Small Business Collaborative, KYCC is funded by the SBA to provide expert guidance and advice on how to start, manage, and grow your own business.


“Small Business owners who are limited in their language capacity do not have the opportunity or the resources to easily learn about the topics we went over today. Thanks to the CBB Bank volunteers, who researched, prepared and delivered based on their expertise, our 20 small business event participants were able to gain valuable knowledge that will enhance their business practices,” says CED Small Business Development Program Coordinator, Sabin Kim.


We would like to thank CBB Bank and all of our event participants for making KYCC’s first ever Small Business Summit a huge success! If you would like to join us for our upcoming workshops, please email smallbusiness@kyccla.org for more information. 

This program is funded by CBB Bank and SBA (CNPP and APISBC).
