The California Small Business Development Centers recently announced that in 2015 through their 44 centers, provided no-cost services to 46,500 California small businesses. The positive economic results stemming from free one-on-one advising included SBDC clients accessing $633.7 million in loan and investment capital last year-an increase of nearly 19% over 2014.
In addition, clients credited the California SBDC program’s assistance with the creation and retention of 8462 jobs in 2015 and the launch of 1039 new businesses and sales increases of $271.8 million.
Small Business California is actively working to increase funding for the SBDC program especially given that money raised is matched by the SBA.
