SBDCs offer no cost, one-on-one, long-term professional business advising, low-cost training, and other specialized services, including business consulting and financial analysis. The SBDC program is one of our nation's largest small business assistance programs within the federal government, made up of a unique mix of SBA federal funds, state and local governments, and private sector resources. SBDCs are often
hosted by leading universities and state economic
development agencies, and are funded in part
through a partnership with the SBA.
