Wednesday, March 17, 2021 marks the 5th Annual #SBDCDay, a national, collective day to “celebrate and promote the impact America’s Small Business Development Centers have on the success of our nation’s dreamers, innovators, and doers.” Nearly 1,000 SBDC centers across the country and the hundreds of thousands of clients they serve will join in sharing success stories and positive results SBDCs have had on the nation’s small business communities.

The Shenandoah Valley Small Business Development Center (SV SBDC) will feature recent accomplishments and testimonials by clients and partners on all their social media channels on #SBDCDay, and premier the new America’s SBDC brand the Center will be adopting over the next few months. More on the brand can be viewed at

“Small Business Development Centers have been a crucial part of the business recovery process during COVID,” said Joyce Krech, Director SV SBDC. “Helping clients navigate the myriad of fast-moving funding opportunities and special programs that have come out of the stimulus bills and through local and regional initiatives has been a major focus for our business advisors. Successfully helping many small businesses quickly pivot to meet the changing needs of their customers during this time is an accomplishment we want to acknowledge. We are proud of the role our team has played.”

Please join in by visiting one of our social media channels (or dropping us an email) and including a short #SBDCstory using fun GIFs, memes, text, images, or emojis! Be sure to tag your business and include a thank you to your favorite advisor/trainer so they know you have played along.  #SVSBDC #SBDCstory #SBDCDay
