Proud to Support America’s SBDCs on the 3rd Annual SBDC Day March 20th
For nearly 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 needed 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 each year, America’s SBDCs are hosting the third annual SBDC Day on March 20th. SBDC Day is a national movement to help share the small business success stories and notable impact SBDCs have fostered in communities nationwide.
“SBDC clients give their SBDCs 4.5 out of 5 stars and 92% of SBDC clients recommend their SBDCs to other small businesses. With nearly 40 years of expertise, proven ROI and stellar client ratings it’s clear that America’s SBDCs are the nation’s most trusted small business resource.” said Charles “Tee” Rowe, President & CEO of America’s SBDC.
Intuit has partnered with America’s SBDC network for over 10 years and strive to provide the Association with current accounting solutions that help them train their clients in their respective communities. They currently provide SBDCs with copies of QuickBooks training licenses and resource manuals to help them better serve their clients. Current or new business owners can go to their local SBDC and learn how to use QuickBooks from experts across the world.
“America’s SBDC network has been amazing to partner with as we collectively help new entrepreneurs realize their dream of business ownership and power prosperity,” said Troy Marcyes, Influencer Relations at Intuit. “We want to continue to inspire customer loyalty in the small business community and provide them with the tools and resources to be successful.”
America’s SBDC network is a partnership that includes the U.S. Congress, SBA, the private sector, and the colleges, universities and state governments that manage SBDCs across the nation. SBDCs provide management and technical assistance to an estimated one million small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs each year. Small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs can go to their local SBDCs for free, face-to-face business consulting and at-cost training on writing business plans, accessing capital, marketing, regulatory compliance, international trade and more.
