Celebrating Success. Redefining Possibilities.
The year 2016 marks the Florida SBDC Network’s 40th anniversary. In 1976, the U.S. Small Business Administration designated the Florida SBDC as one of eight pilot programs in the country. In the forty years since, the Florida SBDC Network has grown, from what once began as one man at the University of West Florida overseeing two centers in Northwest Florida, to a vibrant statewide partnership over 40 centers and nearly 250 employees providing tools, training, and expertise to thousands of Florida’s entrepreneurs and small business owners annually. Join us this year at a Florida SBDC in your community and online as we celebrate our past, present, and future.
