Small Business Investment Company Program

A multi-billion dollar program founded in 1958, the SBIC Program is one of many financial assistance programs available through the U.S. Small Business Administration. The structure of the program is unique in that SBICs are privately owned and managed investment funds, licensed and regulated by SBA, that use their own capital plus funds borrowed with an SBA guarantee to make equity and debt investments in qualifying small businesses. The U.S. Small Business Administration does not invest directly into small business through the SBIC Program, but provides funding to qualified investment managemet firms with expertise in certain sectors or industries.

SBIC fund training and seminars

RSM also offers on-site training designed to help you understand SBA reporting requirements and determine what resources you need to operate effectively. We provide training in a variety of areas, including SBA reporting software and key regulatory, accounting and tax issues. Our SBIC seminars focus on fund formation, accounting, tax and operations. Other educational seminars for your fund and portfolio companies address common industry issues and concerns, such as back-office operations, business acquisitions, industry briefings and our annual accounting and tax update.
