Klamath SBDC

Welcome to the Klamath Community College Small Business Development Center!


At the Klamath Community College SBDC, we support new and experienced small business owners in Klamath and Lake counties. We enjoy the beauty and lifestyle of our area, and our goal is to help make small businesses thrive in our local economy.

The SBDC serves innovators, entrepreneurs and small to medium for-profit businesses with two primary services: confidential no-cost business advising and training.

All of our advisers have owned their own businesses and are delighted to share their experience with you. Our center is part of the Oregon SBDC network that connects local businesses to statewide resources. If we don’t know the answer, we’ll find it.

Let us know how we can help you today. We’d be delighted to work with you!

SBDC staff gave us encouragement when we needed it and criticism when we deserved it. Their guidance helped us to navigate the risks we were taking on and cope with feelings of insecurity. As for recommending the SBDC to others, I’ve already sent someone!
