The SBDC is an amazing resource for business owners and entrepreneurs. My business, knowledge, skills and confidence have all grown with their support. The seminars, classes and events held at the SBDC have all been engaging and very informational. This program is a priceless gift to our community, one that I recommend to anyone in business or hoping to be in the future.
