					            Small Business Development (SBDC)
                                        Purpose:
                                        The Small Business Development Center Initiative mission is
                                        to assist prospective and existing small business owners in
                                        California to start, retain, or expand their businesses, thus
                                        strengthening California's economy and increasing wealth
                                        and quality of life.
                                        Description:
                                        Self employment through small business ownership is vital to
                                        California's economy. Small businesses create jobs and
                                        positive impacts in every community. The Small Business
                                        Development Centers facilitate the creation, expansion and
                                        retention of businesses. Each center provides one-on-one
counseling, workshops, advice and referrals to prospective and existing business owners. The
Centers assist with business plans, marketing, finance questions and other business issues.
                            In support of the United States Small Business Administration's Small
                            Business Development Center program, the California Community
                            Colleges provide fiscal and programmatic resources to the state's
                            SBDC's. Twenty-one SBDCs, in a network of 31 Centers, are hosted by
                            Community Colleges. A partnership of five Universities and one
Community College Regional Lead Centers administer the California SBDC program. Below is a
listing of all 31 of the state's SBDCs, including those not hosted by community colleges. They are
generally geographically listed north to south. Services are provided in every county. Please
contact the Center closest to you for facilitation.
The California Small Business Development Program is sponsored by: CSU Chico, San Jose, Fullerton,
Northridge, UC Merced, Southwestern Community College, the California Community College's Economic and
Workforce Development Programs and the U.S. Small Business Administration. This is a partnership program
under the current Cooperative Agreement with the SBA and the Lead Center hosts. Any opinions, findings,
