Helping small businesses succeed
The Florida SBDC is Florida's provider of small business assistance. As a federally funded organization, the Florida SBDC offers numerous resources, services, workshops and seminars to small business owners and entrepreneurs in order to help them succeed and grow. The Florida SBDC at Eastern Florida State College has been actively serving Brevard County since 1990 as a sub center of the Florida SBDC at the University of Central Florida.
Florida SBDC sponsors seminars and workshops at no cost and fee-based courses and conferences that address a variety of topics, such as business start-up, basic management techniques, business planning, record keeping, specific industry issues, government contracting, international trade, marketing, social media and many others depending on clients' requests and needs.
Florida SBDC also offers consulting at no cost at EFSC locations, and your place of business. Our consultants provide initial interviews in which clients' needs, problems and opportunities are diagnosed and a plan developed to fill those needs. The FSBDC has access to resource and reference materials where small businesses can find useful information on issues such as demographics, taxes, financing, marketing and more.
