You are among the ranks of fellow Virginians running a business and helping drive Virginia and America’s economic engine. Even as we see new norms in the economy, small businesses are critical to our future economic growth.

Asking questions, weighing options and taking action is what business ownership is all about.  The Guide to Doing Business is a great starting point.  It will help you find answers and discover resources essential to your success.

The Virginia Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) Network is the most extensive business assistance program in the commonwealth with offices conveniently located throughout Virginia.  Each SBDC offers business counseling, specialized training and information resources to help emerging and established owner-entrepreneurs succeed.  You can count on experienced insight, practical solutions and respect for confidentiality when you work with the staff of a Virginia SBDC.

The SBDC network is a partnership among the U.S. Small Business Administration, George Mason University-Mason Enterprise Center at the School of Public Policy and premier local institutions focused on supporting your initiatives every step of the way.  Visit to find an office near you. 

Virginia SBDCs is where business comes to talk business.  Call us — we are ready to help you excel!
