Wisconsin SBDC celebrates 40 years of helping businesses

The Wisconsin Small Business Development (SBDC) Network is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2020 as one of the first SBDCs in the country. U.S. Sen. Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin paved the way for this critical assistance to new and existing businesses by spearheading the Small Business Development Act of 1980.

Today, the Wisconsin SBDC Network’s no-cost, confidential consulting and business education are accessible to anyone anywhere across 13 locations. In 2019, the SBDC served 4,658 clients, resulting in $91.3 million in capital investment, 300 new businesses and 19,717 jobs supported.

“Small businesses are the heart of our communities and economies,” said Bon Wikenheiser, state director. “We are grateful to be a trusted resource for business owners, whether they’re writing a business plan, looking for financing, exploring new markets, developing new products, ramping up their marketing or preparing to sell to the next generation.”
