SBDC back in business at PCC

I am excited to report that the College has re-established a relationship with an important business partner. The PCC Governing Board last week approved a three-year Intergovernmental Agreement with the Arizona Small Business Development Center (AZSBDC) for a cooperative effort to host a service center at Community Campus.

The AZSBDC Network is a partnership between the U.S. Small Business Administration and eight community college districts throughout Arizona. Last year the network served more than 3,600 entrepreneurs and more than 3,100 business owners.  At Community Campus, the center will offer quality, no-cost confidential one-on-one counseling and no- or low-cost workshops to new and current businesses and entrepreneurs.

As Janice C Washington, AZSBDC state director says, the strategic alignment between community colleges and SBDC is strong. Small businesses are the engine that drives economic development in our region, and the College is placing a greater emphasis on working with business partners. We are honored to collaborate with an organization dedicated to helping existing and new businesses launch, grow and become sustainable.
