The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Program provides a variety of management assistance to existing and startup businesses. This is mainly accomplished through trainings, seminars and one-on-one counseling sessions. These services are offered at little or no cost to the client.
Register online to attend one of our free seminars or to make an appointment with one of our business counselors. Please note if you are Pre-Venture or a recent Startup Business Owner, we require that you attend an On BASE Startup Business Training Class before meeting with a counselor.
