The U.S. Small Business Administration's premier technical assistance program, the Small Business Development Center program, marked its 20th anniversary this week by celebrating the more than eight million entrepreneurs it has helped to start or expand their business.
There are now 58 small business development centers, at least one in every state, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Through a network of over 1,000 service locations, the SBDCs provide management assistance to current and prospective small business owners. They are essentially one-stop shops for small business assistance, with a wide variety of information and guidance in central and easily accessible branch locations.
