March 20th is national SBDC Day, a national movement and social media campaign to help share collectively the small business success stories and notable impact SBDCs have fostered in communities nationwide. 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.
Vermont Small Business Development Center (VtSBDC) along with our clients, stakeholders, and partners will post on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn today, using the hashtag #SBDCDay, and encourage liking, commenting and sharing.
VtSBDC is a statewide program of the Vermont State Colleges, hosted by Vermont Technical College with a mission to provide expert advice and individualized resources to Vermont’s small businesses to start-grow-thrive-transition. For the past 27 years, VtSBDC has guided Vermonters to create jobs, secure capital, increase the profitability and sustainability of their businesses and grow the Vermont economy. In the past five years, VtSBDC clients have launched over 200 new businesses, created and retained more than 2,570 jobs, generated over $124 million dollars in new capital and over 8,000 Vermonters have been served through one-on-one advising and educational training programs.
