To be eligible, applicants must be presidents or chief executive officers of their companies. The companies must have annual revenue of at least $400,000 and must have been in business for at least three years. Applicants must have at least one employee other than themselves.

In 2012, graduates of the program nationwide reported an overall 65 percent increase in revenue, with $700,000 as the average increased revenue amount, according to statistics posted on the Small Business Administration website. More than 90 percent of the applicants accepted to the program are people of color, women, immigrants, or people who operate a business in a lower-income community, according to the SBA website.
