The Small Business Development Center helped me to create my retail and food service sauce corporation that now distributes nationwide. The services and knowledge they provide is something every business or potential business owner should take advantage of. If you want to grow or help your business, you will contact SBDC.

Without the assistance from the SBDC, this sheer quantity of new customer engagement would have never taken place.

 

The SBDC at JCC is an invaluable resource for our local business community.

Chautauqua Marina

With the assistance of the SBDC, our business was approved for Paycheck Protection Program funding that has helped us save 20+ jobs. They provided a sense of relief as we worked to ensure our business continued to function during and after this pandemic. Our advisor was always available to answer questions or responded quickly. We are lucky to have the SBDC working on behalf of the small businesses in Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Allegany Counties. I highly recommend any small business reach out to the SBDC advisors for help during this pandemic and afterwards to ensure their success in the future.
