Maine Small Business Development Center

Nothing happens unless first a dream - Carl Sandberg

The Maine Small Business Development Centers (Maine SBDC) provide comprehensive business management advice, counseling and education. There is no charge for our counseling services. Our network of professional counselors: 


- Meet individually with business owners to address their concerns - from starting, managing and diversifying, to marketing, growing and financing their business.

- Support can be a onetime project, assist with a short term problem, or an ongoing relationship 

- Offer assistance in developing business plans and loan application packages.

- Offer workshops and seminars to expand small business know-how with practical applications.


Over 90% of clients would recommend the Maine SBDC to other business owners.
