If you are interested in starting your own company, you’re not the only one. With costs at their lowest, high unemployment numbers assisting, people are looking for various avenues of subsidizing their income. However, if you’re also looking at how to keep your overhead low, there are other companies specifically designed to help.
The Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) offers free help to business owners and start-ups, and are not surprisingly seeing a steady increase of entrepreneurs. Offering one-stop assistance, SBDCs offer counselling, training and technology supporting various areas of management, including marketing, finance, production and engineering.
"Their services are phenomenal," says Coleen Reese, who started an on-site heavy equipment repair company with her husband. "We could not have started without their help."
According to Business.com, there are over 1,100 SBDC offices networked across the U.S., and can be found in every state. Most are located in colleges, universities, vocational schools, and economic development corporations.
