Helping Businesses Thrive and Grow

Specialized Services

In addition to our core services, the North Idaho SBDC has specialized expertise in:


Is your business developing or commercializing an innovative product, process or service? Does the innovation involve intellectual property that contributes to a strong competitive advantage in the marketplace and serves as a foundation for a high rate of growth? Then visit the Technology/Innovation section of our website to learn more.


Do you think exporting is just for large companies? Have you received inquiries from outside the US for your product or service? Exporting may seem complicated and scary but our Export Team has your back. We can help assure that you have a strong foundation, assess your readiness, identify foreign markets and put you in touch with a wealth of resources for growth and success.

Government Contracting (PTAC)

The North Idaho SBDC can help you tap into this market through our Idaho Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC). PTAC tracks local, state, and federal bid opportunities, and alerts you to those that match your product and service profile. PTAC registration is free and we offer workshops and one-on-one training to get you started. Visit the government contracting section to get started.

Cyber Security

Cyber Security is a growing threat to small businesses and Idaho is no different. The North Idaho SBDC wants to demystify cyber security and bring awareness about how a business can take the appropriate steps to operate more secure.  We are here to help you prepare for and respond to attacks.
