The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the Entrepreneurs’ Center, in partnership with the State of Ohio and the Small Business Administration (SBA), provides business support, access to small business programming, coaching and mentoring to more than 800 main street businesses regionally. More specifically, we provide complimentary consulting and training to small business owners and potential entrepreneurs in the Dayton Region. We are here to help owners make sound decisions for the successful operation of their business.
"The Entrepreneurial Center provided me great resources during the most critical time of my start-up…… “my pre-start-up stage”. Having an inexpensive dedicated space that I could focus on my business plan and strategy was key. In addition, the human resources available to me during this stage was very useful. Having access to people that had experience in business was very important and the Entrepreneurial Center both had these people internal as well as connected me with many other people to assist me in the development of my business."
"The EC played an enormous role in taking our business to the next level. They provided us with essential resources including a connection to an entrepreneur-in-residence (EIR) at the EC. Karen Posey, President of KP Strategies, has been our secret weapon. Karen has helped us think about what was possible and provided resources to prepare us for the exponential growth we are experiencing. Working with a WBENC certified female-run business is especially important to us! Thank you to the EC for all the support you've provided!"
“The EC is an incredible organization supporting high growth companies out of Dayton and our IP and corporate teams match up really well with the needs of their clientele.”
"I am so blessed and thankful for everyone that has helped us get to this point. Much to do, improve and perfect. But to be able to breathe a little is priceless. It has had many twists and turns, many blessings, and a ton learned. And I could have never done it without your help and EC/ESP"
