SBDC marks 40th anniversary; Helped dozens of business owners helped in Barron County

Wisconsin, among the nation’s first Small Business Development Center networks, will observe the 40th anniversary of the SBDC with celebrations across the state on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, according to a Monday, March 2, press release from the University of Wisconsin System.

Small Business Development Center counseling has helped dozens of business owners and, indirectly, hundreds of employees across Barron County, noted Dave Armstrong, director of the Barron County Economic Development Corporation.

“We’ve used the UW-Eau Claire SBDC so often that they send (Eau Claire SBDC director) Luke Kempen to Rice Lake every Thursday to meet with (local clients),” Armstrong said March 2. “They have been integral to every (small business project) we have done.”
