Small Business Development Center Day is March 17; educational webinars available

Small Business Development Center Day is a national, collective proclamation of the impact America’s Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) have on the success of our nation’s dreamers, innovators and doers – America’s small businesses.

SBDC Day unites the nearly 1,000 SBDC centers across the country and the hundreds of thousands of clients they serve by sharing, in real time, the success stories and notable impacts SBDCs collectively have on the small business community at large.

  The fifth annual SBDC Day will take place on Wednesday, March 17, 2021. Follow the conversation online by following the hashtag #SBDC Day

America’s SBDCs help make the dream of small business ownership a reality for more Americans — creating jobs and opportunities that build communities throughout the nation.   With the support of the LSBDC at Southern University in Baton Rouge, SBA enhanced the Historically Black College and University (HBCU) initiative whereby they worked with all four HBCUs in Louisiana.

SBDC will offer several educational webinars beginning on March 16. Various topics will include Digital Trends, Small Business Conversations and How to Build Communities. A list of events celebrating online can be found at https://americassbdc.org/sbdcday/
