Dave Price

How do your colleagues describe you?

“He loves supporting coastal entrepreneurs as much as he loves watching the Kansas Jayhawks.”

Why do you do what you do?

“I’m a part of the SBDC family because I discovered the value of our services as a client, in the crucible that was the Great Recession. Our coastal business benefited greatly from the SBDC and I am honored to be able to pay it forward. Also, the benefits run both ways; there’s an undeniable charge you get by working with passionate entrepreneurs and risk-takers. Like many in the Oregon SBDC Network, I feed on that energy.”


Dave leads a dedicated team of professionals working to help start, grow and retain businesses in Lincoln County. He is a former publisher of several community newspapers and founded Oregon Coast Today, the coast’s leading source of arts, entertainment and outdoor news. Dave also serves as Oregon Coast Community College’s public information officer and on the institution’s marketing team, creating and placing content on a variety of media, including social media.
