TOMORROW: Obama Cabinet Member Joins Mayor Garcetti to Announce Federal Investment in LA Small Businesses

Local Event to Follow President Obama’s Speech on Innovation & Entrepreneurship

LOS ANGELES – Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet, the head of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will join Mayor Eric Garcetti to announce investments that directly impact Los Angeles’ small business community.  This event will follow up on announcements made by President Obama as he hosts the first-ever White House Demo Day, which will celebrate the important role entrepreneurship plays in America’s economy. Unlike a private-sector Demo Day, where entrepreneurs and startups pitch their ideas to funders, these innovators from around the country will “demo” their individual stories. 

The Demo Day event will showcase why we need to give more entrepreneurs from all walks of life a chance to turn their ideas into indispensable products and services, and will include new announcements that support inclusive entrepreneurship. Specifically, two of those announcements will impact Los Angeles’ small business community, supporting innovation in the city.

Prior to joining the Obama Administration, Administrator Contreras-Sweetwas the first Latina to hold a state cabinet post in California. As Secretary of Business, Transportation and Housing, she managed 13 departments, including Caltrans, the California Highway Patrol, the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Department of Financial Institutions. She was a founding director of The California Endowment, a multi-billion dollar philanthropic health foundation.
