Each year, the nationwide network of small business development centers (SBDC) take a day to recognize their collective accomplishments in helping America’s small businesses succeed. SBDC Day will unite 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 have on the small business community at large. This year, SBDC Day is Wednesday, March 20th, 2019 and there is a lot to be celebrated.
With the help of SBDCs all across the country, in-depth clients created 93,471 new jobs, secured $5.9 billion in financing and generated $7 billion in new sales; that’s a new job every 5.6 minutes, $100,000 in new sales every 7.5 minutes and $100,000 in capital every 8.9 minutes.
