Center to celebrate small business
DURHAM — The New Hampshire Small Business Development Center will participate on March 22 in the first national SBDC Day, a national effort to share small business success stories and the impact of SBDCs nationwide.
The first pilot Small Business Development Centers started in 1979, and the SBDC was founded in New Hampshire in 1984, under Gov. John H. Sununu. The NH SBDC has provided business advising services to more than 26,000 entrepreneurs, and has provided online and in-person educational content to more than 65,000 individuals.
“We are thrilled to join with SBDCs around the country to celebrate our clients and showcase the work we do for America’s small businesses,” said Rich Grogan, NH SBDC state director.
The NH SBDC is an outreach program of the UNH Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, and a cooperative venture of the U.S. Small Business Administration, the state of New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development, the University System of New Hampshire and the private sector.
