Supporting Small Business through SBDCs

MBFC recently awarded a grant of $5,000.00 to Minnesota’s Central Region Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in St. Cloud, MN.

The Central Region SBDC program serves the Minnesota counties of Benton, Morrison (southern half), Sherburne, Stearns, Wright, and portions of Mille Lacs and Swift counties. The SBDC provides consulting, training, and research to assist small businesses to start, grow and transition at no-cost to the SBDC clients.

MBFC appreciates the partnership with Central Region SBDC and their important guidance and resources given to the small business community.  The SBDC’s responsive and proactive approach to training and consultation is certainly a great asset to entrepreneurs!
