For 40 years the America’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network has helped aspiring and emerging small business owners achieve the American dream of entrepreneurship. This March SBDCs from around the country are coming together for one special day to celebrate their work, impact and most importantly their clients – America’s small businesses.
With nearly 1,000 locations across the country, SBDCs provide local businesses and entrepreneurs with the resources needed to succeed. In 2018, America’s SBDC clients experienced annual sales growth of 17.7% almost 4.5 times more than the national average. SBDC assistance resulted in 99,194 jobs created; $7 billion in sales growth; $5.6 billion in capital investments; and 16,499 new businesses started.
SBDCs have also supported small business in ways beyond business development. SBDCs are key partners in disaster recovery, working with SBA, FEMA, and State agencies to improve resiliency and speed recovery in disaster-stricken communities. Whether it is flooding, hurricanes, earthquakes or wildfires you will find SBDCs staffing the Business Recovery Centers and reestablishing communities. In addition, you’ll find SBDCs helping with cybersecurity, hosting rural development conferences, and teaching opioid awareness. All the things that make SBDCs the leader in small business assistance.
To celebrate the collective impact and success SBDCs have across the nation and in local communities each year, America’s SBDCs are hosting the fourth annual SBDC Day on March 18th. SBDC Day is a national movement to help share the small business success stories and notable impact SBDCs have fostered in communities nationwide.
