"We feel that increasingly, small business owners are looking online for the information they need and using those new resources to further their business," SBA Administrator Karen G. Mills said in a statement. "This is another example of our enhanced efforts to meet our constituents where they are and ensure they have access to the tools and information they need to start and grow their small business, and create jobs."

The SBA made other technology news for small business recently when it announced that it would be teaming up with Microsoft to introduce a brand-new guide. The Business Technology Simplified guidebook will give entrepreneurs a way to find out more about online opportunities.
