Chapter 15: Learning from the Experience... > Locate a Small Business Development ...

Locate a Small Business Development Center

Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) are cooperative programs designed to provide current and potential business owners with advice and information on running their businesses. SBDCs are sponsored by a partnership between the Small Business Administration (SBA), a local college or university, and often your state’s Economic Development Department. Every state has a central SBDC, and the United States has nearly 1,000 service centers, most of which are located on college or community college campuses.

To locate the SBDC nearest you, visit www.sba.gov/sbdc or call 800-8- ASK-SBA.
