Small Business Development Center Opens Office in Riverside

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

The Inland Empire Small Business Development Center (SBDC) has recently opened an office at 3780 Market Street.

“The Small Business Development Center is a tremendous resource for local small business owners and entrepreneurs,” explained City of Riverside Economic Development Manager Larry Vaupel. “While the SBDC serves a larger region within Inland Southern California, having an office located in Downtown Riverside makes accessing the many services and trainings they offer much easier for our companies.”

The Inland Empire SBDC provides existing and startup businesses with technical assistance designed to improve their competitive standing in the marketplace. SBDC clients receive expert guidance and benefit from the experiences of staff and other businesses. With hundreds of workshops and thousands of hours in confidential, one-on-one consulting sessions, the SBDC helps clients create viable business, long-term jobs and access more money to expand and start businesses that will last.
