America’s SBDCs Host 3rd Annual SBDC Day March 20th
The nation’s largest, proven, cost effective small business assistance program invites you to the celebration.
Burke, VA – For almost 40 years the America’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network has helped aspiring and emerging small business owners achieve the American dream of entrepreneurship. This March SBDCs from around the country are coming together for one special day to celebrate their work, impact and most importantly their clients – America’s small businesses.
With nearly 1,000 locations across the country, SBDCs provide local businesses and entrepreneurs with the resources to succeed. In 2017, America’s SBDC clients experienced annual sales growth of 18.1%, almost 4.5 times more than the national average. SBDC assistance resulted in 93,471 jobs created; $7 billion in sales growth; $5.9 billion in capital investments; and 14,716 new businesses started.
To celebrate the collective impact and success SBDCs have across the nation and in local communities, America’s SBDCs are hosting the third annual SBDC Day on March 20th. SBDC Day is a national movement to share the small business success SBDCs have fostered in communities nationwide.
America’s SBDCs would like to thank the following 2019 SBDC Day Ambassadors for promoting and supporting this year’s SBDC Day: the Small Business Administration (SBA); Intuit; Google; LivePlan; BizBuySell; Nav; ComplyRight; United Midwest Savings Bank; GrowthWheel; Better Business Bureau; Finagraph; First Bank; FranNet; Hiscox; Koble; Profits Plus Solutions; The Profit Beacon; Launchpad; Back2Basics, LLC and Small Business Majority.
