The Oregon SBDC Network serves the small businesses of Oregon in good times and not so good times as they work to help build Oregon’s best businesses. And, when those challenges present themselves, the Advisers of the Oregon SBDC are on the front lines in assisting local businesses to navigate through them.
Disaster assistance, whether it be natural disasters or a global pandemic, is essential in helping support and sustain the viability of those small businesses through the crisis. The Oregon SBDC considers disaster assistance one of their higher callings to serve the underserved and vulnerable businesses of our state and are committed to their success.

You’ll never experience what business is like today, until today. The SBDC really taught me to do what I do best, and to outsource the rest.
I was hoping for the financial knowledge, and I got so much more out of it. The course covered all the basis of owning and operating a small business from systems implementation, marketing, management of employees and the financial piece I was originally looking for.
No matter how long you’ve been in business, it doesn’t mean you can’t change or learn new things. The folks at the SBDC have been invaluable for that.
