We work with new and established small and medium-sized businesses to offer:

  • Free consulting services
  • Assistance with business planning
  • Seminars and training workshops

We serve the experienced owner who wants to expand a business, solve business problems, and enter new markets. We also serve the aspiring entrepreneur who needs help understanding the requirements for going into business, financial management issues, marketing techniques, business plan development, and the qualifications for obtaining start-up funds.

We are one of 29 centers across Virginia providing professional business advice, training, and resources to help grow and strengthen Virginia businesses. The Virginia SBDC Network is the most extensive business development program in the Commonwealth.
