Dean, Coggin College of Business
University of North Florida - Jacksonville

I think the Small Business Development Center is one of the shining stars we have at the Coggin College of Business. It is how we do outreach to the community, engage with small businesses, train budding entrepreneurs and existing entrepreneurs to do a better job and helping them grow their business and be more successful. We’ve had a tremendous impact not only on the North Florida region, but also throughout the state of Florida — not only in terms of creating new jobs, but also bringing in government contracts and working with the community to help everyone grow their business. I want to congratulate the Small Business Development Center on it’s 40th anniversary. We look forward to partnering with them and working with them for the next 40 years. We expect great things and will continue to do great things for North Florida.
