Today, the Small Business Administration and the Department of Labor announced a new website to help states offer Self-Employment Assistance programs to those looking to create jobs in their communities.

The website named Self-Employment Assistance Center has the tagline “Building Tomorrow’s Entrepreneurs Through Self-Employment Assistance.” The goals of the website, as outlined on its homepage is to provide another reemployment alternative for unemployed workers, promote job creation and help grow state and local economies.

On the website, perspective entrepreneurs can find toolkits from the SBA which offer courses and training on how to start a business, prepare a business plan and learn the basics of franchising. Other topics available on the site include raising capital for a new business, entrepreneurial marketing, tax info and other information to assist a new entrepreneur.

In a printed statement on the Department of Labor’s blog, Karen Mills, the Administrator of the Small Business Administration, said: “ The entrepreneurial spirit is what drives this country. In fact, small businesses and start-ups are responsible for creating two out of every three new jobs in the United States. And more than half of all working Americans own or work for a small business. That’s why helping to create an environment where more businesses are easily able to start and succeed has been an important goal for this administration.”

This website comes as part of an initiative from the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012, signed by President Obama earlier this year.
