Owning a small business calls for vision, determination and all the sound expertise you can find. The SBDC can guide you down the road to success with:
- One-on-one counseling by qualified professionals
- A variety of learning opportunities, including workshops, classes, on-line assistance
and publications and other resources
- Connections to other service providers, federal, state and local resources, sources
of capital and similar assistance for small businesses
Iowa's SBDCs are partially funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration via a contract with Iowa State University. Additional funding is provided by the State of Iowa. Support for regional centers is provided by SBDC host institutions and contributed funds. The local center is hosted by Eastern Iowa Community Colleges.
Because 97.5 percent of Iowa's businesses are small businesses (fewer than 500 employees), the SBDCs face a monumental task in assisting them. Yet Iowa SBDC results are extraordinary. According to an independent study by Dr. James Chrisman of the University of Mississippi, over the past seven years long-term clients assisted by the Iowa SBDCs achieved the following:
- Generation of 6,921 new jobs
- Production of $366,939,828 in incremental sales
- Securing of $289,115,511 in financing.
