Helping small businesses succeed
The Florida Small Business Development Center (FSBDC) is a federally funded organization that offers numerous resources, services, workshops and seminars to small business owners and entrepreneurs in order to help them succeed and grow. As part of the Florida Small Business Development Center Network and as a sub center of the Florida Small Business Development Center of the University of Central Florida, EFSC's FSBDC has been actively serving Brevard County since 1990.
FSBDC 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.
FSBDC also offers consulting at no cost at EFSC locations, and your place of business. Our counselors 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.
The FSBDC at Eastern Florida State College is a member of the Florida SBDC Network, a statewide service network funded in part through cooperative agreements with the U.S. Small Business Administration, Defense Logistics Agency, State of Florida and other private and public partners; hosted by the University of West Florida; and nationally accredited by the Association of SBDC's.
