Today, we recognize SBDC Day and the contributions of our Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) across the Nation. Over the last 40 years, countless small businesses have started or expanded with the help of SBDCs. SBDC Day unites the nearly 1,000 SBDCs nationwide, marking the effect they have made in developing successful small businesses.

SBDCs deliver one-on-one counseling, training and technical assistance in all aspects of small business management. They offer services that include help with business planning, financing assistance, manufacturing, marketing, feasibility studies, market research, and finding solutions to technical problems. Many SBDCs also offer specialized assistance in economic development, procurement, venture capital formation, rural development, and importing and exporting.

In addition to core business skills, SBDCs provide access to all of the SBA’s financial and procurement assistance programs. Join in on SBDC Day by visiting your local Small Business Development Center!

If you’re interested in starting, growing, or expanding your business, find the SBDC nearest to you at SBA Get Local Assistance.
