Welcome! We are eager to help you succeed in your business endeavors.

Every year, the NJSBDC at TCNJ counsels more than 500 established and start-up businesses. Since 1981 we have trained approximately 19,000 business people with informational seminars and hands-on management workshops.

Lorraine Allen - America's Small Business Development Center at The College of New Jersey Mercer CountyA variety of educational and business resources are available to counsel and train small business owners to finance, market and manage their companies. Clients are assisted in exploring their business ideas, developing and assessing their business plans, making cash flow projections and accurate financial statements, and formulating marketing strategies. International trade, government procurement, technology commercialization, e-commerce, manufacturing Mentor/Protégé and information services specialty programs are coordinated from NJSBDC headquarters.

Programs are based upon the assumption that small business owners may have pressing business needs and demands and limited time available for addressing these needs. Courses, workshops and conferences are designed to give managers, owners, and potential owners the tools to analyze and resolve business problems and to keep abreast of educational, financial, research and international trade developments.

All programs are presented by highly qualified specialists, including government representatives, faculty, business owners, and private consultants.

The NJSBDC network also provides opportunities for students to participate in research and get first-hand business experience under the supervision of faculty and business professionals.

Our goals are to ensure that our Clients:
Receive the right service in a timely and professional manner;
Acquire the necessary business skills that will enable them to become self-sufficient entrepreneurs and competent business managers;
Establish sustainable and successful businesses that will enhance their economic quality of life as well as their communities.

Our motto is “NJSBDC is where businesses go to grow…“

Wishing business success,

Lorraine Allen, Regional Director
