What is Small Business Risk Education (SBRE) and Business Continuity Planning?

COULD YOUR BUSINESS STAY OPEN if there was a natural disaster or if you had major surgery? DID YOU KNOW you could be held liable for the auto accident of an employee? WHAT WOULD YOU DO if your computer system has been hacked?


Travelers Risk Control Consultant and SBS will provide a free training session to assist you in developing a risk management plan to address your business risks. Participants will also receive information on available business resources.

SBRE Program provides one-on-one consultation

Participants will receive a free phone consultation with Travelers Risk Control Professional to review their risk management plan.

Access to Capital

After the consultation, businesses are eligible to apply for a VEDC small business loan, which could provide funds to support the implementation of a risk management plan and business growth. We encourage Veteran-, Women-and Minority-Owned Businesses to attend.
