The Butler County Small Business Development Center
recently received the 2017 National Small Business Development Center of the Year award. It celebrated its accomplishments on March 22, or #SBDCDay.
Over the past three years, the Butler County SBDC has generated over $20 million in loan funding to local small businesses. The Hamilton Mill
-based organization helps build small businesses through a number of programs and activities — combined with strategic partnerships with other business-oriented groups — to provide a strong entrepreneurial assistance environment in Butler County.
The SBDC network was signed into law in 1980, and since then, the network has grown to over 1,000 centers. America’s SBDC network leverages a partnership that includes U.S. Congress, SBA, the private sector, and the colleges, universities and state governments that manage SBDCs across the nation. Each year, SBDCs provide management and technical assistance to about one million small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs.
