Linda Rossi

State Director

Statewide with Lead Center Office in Randolph

I’d like to welcome you to the Vermont Small Business Development Center (VtSBDC). I encourage you to explore the services we offer and meet the people on our team. For the past 25 years, VtSBDC has worked to positively impact and strengthen established businesses and start-up entrepreneurs through one-on-one, confidential, no-cost advising services.

What we do:
• Help Vermonters to Create Jobs
• Secure Capital for their businesses
• Build Wealth in their businesses
• Grow the Vermont Economy

How do we do this? Our Business Advisors are experienced business professionals committed, as individuals and as a team, to working with business owners. A business advisor serves each county and collaborates with the Regional Economic Development Corporations as part of the State’s “one stop shop” economic development deployment plan.

Clients of VtSBDC have access to regional and national resources, industry market research and tools. One such example is a financial analysis tool which can help business owners compare their business to others in the same industry, explore options and test assumptions before putting them in action.

Many have called it “one of their best business strategies.”

Vermont Small Business Development Center (VtSBDC) is a statewide program of the Vermont State Colleges, hosted by Vermont Technical College. VtSBDC is funded in part by the U.S. Small Business Administration and the State of Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development and nationally accredited by the Association of Small Business Development Centers.
