What does the SBDC do for entrepreneurs?

  1. The business incubator, a 42,000 square foot facility, houses start-up and emerging businesses, giving them the opportunity to reach a maturity level, which will help to ensure long-term success for the operation. The incubator offers a full-range of services and a variety of different types and sizes of space.
  2. Provides existing and prospective business owners throughout the Region 2000 area with in-depth counseling and business-related training classes, seminars and workshops.
  3. Provides direct financing to small business owners with a variety of loan programs and gap financing.

All three services of the SBDC are in sync with the needs of the typical entrepreneur. As a result, we often serve as a “one-stop-shop” resource for entrepreneurs who are seeking assistance in the development of their projects.
