is a national, collective proclamation of the success and impacts America’s Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) have across the nation in economic development and the small businesses community.

America’s SBDC New Jersey will join with the other 49 states’ SBDCs to celebrate the first America’s SBDC Day TODAY, Wednesday, March 22, 2017.  Nearly 1,000 offices nationally will join in promoting – via social media and live and other events – the core mission and successful outcomes of America’s SBDC program. Sharing the stories of YOU – our clients – is the best way to celebrate #SBDCDay.

We’ll be sharing videos on our Facebook pages in English and Spanish, so join in the social media conversation by using the hashtag #SBDCDay. Follow us to see the updates happen in real time! 

“We’re uniting on a national basis to talk about this program’s successes,” said Brenda Hopper, NJSBDC network chief executive officer and state director. “There’s no better story than those of SBDC clients assisted by the network’s 12 centers statewide and our specialty programs in E-Business, International Trade, Procurement, Technology Commercialization, and Sustainability.”

“The best actions our 12 centers undertake focus on imparting knowledge so our small business clients learn how to succeed and face the daily challenges in developing and building their business,” added Deborah Smarth, NJSBDC network chief operating officer and associate state director. “SBDC Day is a more visible extension of that mission that we undertake every day of the year. We share knowledge and ensure our clients go down the right path, utilizing our assistance to build success.”
