Partnerships are key to the success of the Pennsylvania SBDC program. The SBDC program is a public-private partnership that leverages the resources of government, higher education and the business community to facilitate the growth of Pennsylvania small firms. Funding support and resources are provided by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the U.S. Small Business Administration, the 18 participating colleges and universities, local economic and community development organizations, the financial and professional communities, and the Defense Logistics Agency among others.
In order to meet the varied needs of entrepreneurs and small firms, the SBDCs are active participants in their communities through involvement with a wide range of public and private organizations. These relationships allow for cross referral of clients and cooperative consultation services and training programs. The SBDCs have strong working relationships with the following organizations among many others:
Chamber of Commerce
Economic Development Corporation
Main Street Programs
