Northern California Small Business Development Center Network
The Northern California Small Business Development Center Network is one of five regions providing small business owners and entrepreneurs with the tools and guidance needed to become successful in today's challenging economic climate. Direct and personalized technical assistance is provided to small business owners through professional consulting, supplemented by low-cost or free seminars and conferences.

Our local SBDC provides comprehensive business guidance on most business issues including; best practices for small businesses, business plan development, start-up basics, financing, procurement & contracting opportunities, regulatory compliance, money management, international trade, and manufacturing assistance.
Our one-on-one advising is funded in part by the U.S. Small Business Administration, GO-Biz out of the Governors Economic Development Office, and local partners and is offered at no cost to the client.
