Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

NATIONAL SBDC DAY – Third Wednesday in March

NATIONAL SBDC DAY – Third Wednesday in March


During the third Wednesday in March, National Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) Day recognizes the thousands of SBDCs across the country supporting entrepreneurs in the pursuit of small business ownership.

Created in 1976, SBDCs provide innovative resources and tools that contribute to the success of start-ups and small businesses. Across the country on National SBCD Day, events and conferences present platforms designed to demonstrate the impact of SBDCs. From financial and business planning to technology, security, and marketing, SBDCs contribute to the overall success of small businesses.

Across the United States, 63 Lead Small Business Development Centers assist current and prospective small business owners. There’s at least one in every state, the District of Columbia, and its territories. They provide a network of locations throughout the country that provide assistance in a wide variety of expertise.

SBDCs aren’t limited to new small businesses either. If a small business is looking to expand, the SBDC offers assistance as well.


Join an event and learn about all the benefits. To find out more visit americassbdc.org. Other ways to celebrate include:
