A little over a month ago, the Washington Small Business Development Center held a ribbon cutting for their brand-new lead center / state headquarters in Spokane Valley. The new center is located in office space on the Spokane Conservation District's Quarry Campus at 4420 E. 8th Ave in Spokane Valley.
According to their website The Washington Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is a network of more than 30 expert business advisors working in communities across the state to help entrepreneurs or small business owners start, grow or buy/sell a business. The Washington SBDC is an accredited member of America's SBDC, funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the US Small Business Administration, institutions of higher education, economic development organizations and other public and private funding partners.
In addition to their business advising services the SBDC also periodically hosts various workshops, some geared towards specific business groups. For more information on the services of the Washington SBDC visit their website at http://wsbdc.org
