The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is currently the largest management assistance program serving the business sector in the United States.

An SBDC conducts research, counsels and trains business people in managing, financing and operating small businesses, providing comprehensive information services and access to experts in a variety of fields. Each SBDC encourages unique local efforts to meet small business needs in its area. 

It is the philosophical approach of the SBDC to guide and train the client in the areas of assistance required, rather than doing the work for them. Any present or prospective business owner is eligible for SBDC management and technical advising at no charge.
