About Us

Starting a business can be a challenge, but there is help for you in your area. Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) are partnerships primarily between the government and colleges/universities administered by the Small Business Administration and aims at giving educational services for small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs. Mason SBDC services are provided free of charge due to the generosity of our sponsors.

SPONSORS

Mason SBDC is funded through a cooperative agreement between the U.S. Small Business Administration, Virginia SBDC Network, and George Mason University – Mason Enterprise Center.

The SBDC is partially funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration. SBA’s funding is not an endorsement of any products, opinions, or services. SBA-funded programs are extended to the public on a non-discriminatory basis.

U.S. Small Business Administration

Since its founding on July 30, 1953, the U.S. Small Business Administration has delivered millions of loans, loan guarantees, contracts, counseling sessions and other forms of assistance to small businesses.

Counseling, training and information resources are the hallmarks of the SBDC program. Business owners and managers can count on professional guidance, experienced insight, practical solutions and respect for confidentiality when they work with a Virginia SBDC.
