Supporting Small Business through SBDCs

MBFC recently awarded a grant of $5,000.00 to South Dakota’s Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in Sioux Falls, SD. MBFC covers Brookings, Deuel, Grant, Lincoln, Minnehaha, and Moody counties in Southeast South Dakota providing the SBA 504 Loan Program to small businesses.

The South Dakota SBDC provides consulting, training, and research to assist South Dakota small businesses to start, grow and transition at no-cost to the SBDC clients.

MBFC appreciates the partnership with the South Dakota 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!
