|Development Center at Indiana University of Pennsylvania|
The Small Business Development Center at Indiana University of Pennsylvania seeks to grow the economy of Indiana County and the surrounding region by providing entrepreneurs with the education, information, and tools necessary to build successful businesses.
The IUP SBDC provides consulting services and educational programs to entrepreneurs looking to start or grow a small business. From helping aspiring entrepreneurs turn ideas into businesses, to helping small firms expand, to providing the information every business person needs to make critical decisions, the SBDC is the resource entrepreneurs in all industry sectors can turn to for help—help that can make the difference between success and failure.
All services are provided by a staff of highly qualified consultants. In addition to practical experience in operating small businesses themselves, the combined staffs of the SBDC and the Management Services Group (MSG) have more than one hundred years of business experience and hold degrees across a range of business disciplines. The IUP SBDC also taps the expertise of industry experts, successful entrepreneurs, and other business professionals to deliver its educational programs.
The Indiana University of Pennsylvania SBDC is sponsored by Indiana University of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Small Business Development Centers.
