I’ve found that entrepreneurs on Oregon’s central coast share an unflagging optimism as they strive to build their businesses.
The coast attracts a special kind of entrepreneur. Stunning natural beauty and thriving tourism, fishing and natural resource industries help define a promising market. But this market also brings challenges, like stark seasonality.
Our team at the Oregon Coast Community College Small Business Development Center is here to help you, every step of the way. We’ve started, operated and sold businesses on the coast, so we understand the challenges and the opportunities the coast presents. At our center, prospective or current business owners can take advantage of free, confidential, one-on-one business advising and free and low-cost business courses.
Our dedicated staff works to help start, grow and retain profitable businesses throughout Lincoln County. Request a free business advising appointment today or call 541-994-4166 to learn more.
Director, Oregon Coast SBDC
When we didn’t know the next step to take, we would talk to Dave and he would guide us in the right direction on what to do next.
The SBDC is going to help me grow. It already has in many ways.
If you just need to bounce an idea off of someone who’s been in the industry and has experience in the area of what you want to do, it’s just good to go talk with (SBDC) and see if they can help make it more simple.
I truly don’t think we would have been able to do it without SBDC. Our adviser made us think about things we weren’t thinking about at that moment, like how to budget for a website.
