The Southwest Small Business Development Center assists hundreds of start-up and existing small businesses with the technical assistance needed to start, succeed and grow.  When our small businesses grow, new jobs are created, jobs that may be more likely to stay in our region,  because it is home to the entrepreneurs who created them.
