The Travelers Small Business Risk Education (SBRE) program provides safety risk management education for minority- and women-owned small businesses. Travelers has partnered with nonprofit organizations in Los Angeles, California, Chicago, Illinois, New York City and Atlanta, Georgia to deliver the following three-part program.
Travelers believes safety risk management and business continuity are important skills that are too often overlooked in business education programs. According to the Travelers Business Risk index, only 30 percent of small business owners have a plan in place to help stem loss from recognized risks to their storefronts.
Amid the daily challenges of running a business, it is all too easy for business owners to neglect the risks around them, or the importance of adequate coverage. A broad understanding of the safety risk management can help small business owners sustain and grow their business, even after catastrophic events, and become a competitive advantage.
Established in 2012, the Travelers SBRE program partners with some of the most accomplished small business development not-for-profit organizations are microlenders in the country, including:
