Meet Small Business Development Centers

Here's some good news in the field of small business financing. Dawn Rivers Baker pointed in her article about Small Business Development Centers which offers free training.

That sort of training is available for free through SBA entrepreneurial development programs like the Small Business Development Centers (SBDC).

The SBDC program is the grandfather of the SBA’s entrepreneurial development programs, established in 1980. It is an outstandingly successful program that typically returns a minimum of $2 to the federal treasury for ever $1 spent on it, and saves or creates countless small business jobs on an annual basis.

The SBDC network is affiliated with colleges and universities or with state economic development departments around the country. There are SBDC state affiliates associated with such august institutions as Howard University in Washington, D.C. and the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton School of Business in Philadelphia.
