America’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Arizona Network is joining the national celebration for SBDC Day, March 20, 2019, uniting the nearly 1,000 SBDC centers across the country and the hundreds of thousands of clients they serve by sharing the notable impacts that SBDCs collectively have on the small business community at large.
Small businesses make up 97.1 percent of all employers in Arizona. In the 30+ years of its existence, the AZSBDC has helped companies create or retain more than 20,000 jobs.
“SBDC Day is a real opportunity to recognize and applaud the achievements of America’s SBDC Arizona Network,” AZSBDC State Director, Janice Washington, said. “Our organization has worked hard these last three decades to support the backbone of the community; small business growth and economic impact.”
“We are here to help small businesses in Navajo and Apache counties, including reservation areas, succeed. We offer quality educational programs, resources and confidential, no-cost, "one-on-one" counseling focused on a broad range of business issues,” notes Tracy Mancuso, director of the SBDC at Northland Pioneer College.
To celebrate the collective impact SBDCs have across the nation and in local communities each year, America’s SBDCs will celebrate the national movement to help share the small business success stories and notable impact that SBDCs have fostered in communities nationwide.
“It’s great to see SBDCs, their clients and supporters come together to celebrate SBDCs and their amazing clients. With SBDC support small businesses around the country raised over $5 billion in capital and created nearly 100,000 jobs,” said Charles “Tee” Rowe, President and CEO of America’s SBDC.
