OVERVIEW OF SDIV SBDC NETWORK PROGRAM GOALS
SBDC: The SBDC mission is to grow the economic vitality of our community and our State, fostering job creation and retention, capital investments, and dynamic innovations that support an ever-improving quality of life for
everyone in our community. This mission is accomplished by assisting local small businesses and entrepreneurs
build a foundation for individual and company success through individual counseling, organized business
education, and innovative special programs.
In support of this mission, and the SDI initiative launched in Jan 2015, the SD/IV Regional SBDC Network has
developed a program specific to the needs of the LGBTBE Biz Builder program to assist in the growth and development of LGBTBE certified businesses in this area.
