Who We Are
45 Years of Helping Small Businesses
Does the SBDC Work?
The SBDC’s performance is assessed based on the economic impact its customers achieve. Surveys consistently show that businesses assisted by the SBDC outperform non-assisted businesses, creating three times more jobs and increasing sales three times faster. For every federal dollar invested in the SBDC program, nearly $57 is returned in the form of tax revenue. Not a bad Return on Investment!

– Mark Brennan
