The Grady Firm Founder Graduates SBA Emerging Leaders Program 2021

Jennifer Grady, Esq. is proud to announce her graduation from the SBA Emerging Leaders Program 2021!


The Emerging Leaders Initiative is an intensive executive-level series developed by the Small Business Administration (SBA) to accelerate the growth of high-potential small businesses in America’s underserved cities. This year, there were over 300 applicants, narrowed down to only 12 graduates from the Inland Empire/Orange County SBA cohort. Over the last 7 months, participants took customized courses for C-level executives; engaged in small CEO groups; obtained meaningful mentorship from experienced service professionals in the areas of accounting, government contracting, and marketing; and had opportunities to develop strategic growth plans for the next three years.


The course included over 120 hours of professional specialized training and peer-to-peer counseling delivered over the course of seven months in the following areas:

  • Growth Strategies Plans

  • Financing and Access to Capital

  • Government Contracting

  • CEO Mentoring

  • Marketing

Ms. Grady would like to thank the cohort’s Marty Shea (past instructor of the year), and SBA program managers, Africa R. and Sylvia Gonzalez. Thank you and congratulations to all the classmates, who are inspirations with their own businesses, for seven months of camaraderie and hard work.





Immense gratitude to the SBA and Irvine Chamber of Commerce for the fantastic program!
