On Wednesday, March 21, 2018, the Alabama SBDC Network will join SBDCs nationally to celebrate the second annual SBDC Day. SBDC Day is a national movement to help raise awareness about the service offering and impact of America’s SBDCs – the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) largest business assistance program.
This special day will be celebrated with social media campaigns, public relations initiatives, online and in-person events and more. With nearly 1,000 centers across the country, SBDCs provide assistance to small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs throughout the United States and its territories.
Business has changed dramatically in the last 40 years, from the introduction of new technologies to the expansion of global trade. And America’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) network has been there throughout — helping small businesses succeed, and helping aspiring entrepreneurs achieve the American dream of owning their own business.
In 2017, the Alabama SBDC assisted clients with the creation of over 1,500 jobs, the creation of over 200 new businesses, access to over $60 million in capital, and an astounding $750 million in government contracts.
