Businesses have always celebrated ribbon cuttings, grand openings and company anniversaries, and for a second year they’ll be able to celebrate the people who help them turn their dreams into a reality – Small Business Development Centers. SBDC Day is a national proclamation of America’s Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs), and their impact on the success of our nation’s dreamers, innovators and doers — America’s small businesses. And we’re inviting you to join in the celebration!
America’s SBDC Day is set for March 21, 2018, a day that will unite nearly 1,000 SBDCs across the country and hundreds of thousands of clients they’ve served. Small businesses are the engine of America’s economic growth –and America’s SBDCs are the spark plugs that keep that engine going.
In 2017, the LA Regional SBDC Network advised over 4,201 entrepreneurs which accounted for 365 business starts, 1,466 jobs created, $355 million in new sales, and $148 million in capital investments.
How has the SBDC helped you make your dream a reality? How has the SBDC made a difference in your life or in your community? We encourage you to share your SBDC story by using the hashtag #SBDCDay on social media on March 21st.
