UC Merced Small Business Development Center
Resource Day – Economic Vitality Corporation Offices
Fresno, CA - The University of California Merced Small Business Development Center (SBDC) will be meeting with small business entrepreneurs beginning April 30, 2009 at the Economic Vitality Corporation (EVC) “Creekside Center” www.sloevc.org to provide information on how the SBDC business consultants can help you in the growth and development of your small business.
During the SBDC visit, entrepreneurs, startup companies and even seasoned firms can confidentially discuss and review business strategies. Topics of discussion may include how to start a small business, how to apply for a SBA loan, request research assistance, selling to the federal government and an overview of our technical assistance programs that are available to assist small business entrepreneurs.
SBDC consultants realize that business entrepreneurs are very busy and to leave their businesses for any length of time can be difficult. The EVC is a tremendous resource for entrepreneurs and UC Merced SBDC leadership appreciates the donation of their convenient location for holding the appointment sessions. A UC Merced SBDC business consultant will be available for appointments at the EVC on April 30, May 15, May 28, June 11 and June 25, 2009 in Interview Room 2.
Entrepreneurs often find that discussing questions in a confidential and unbiased setting can help identify and clarify key decisions in order to strengthen their strategic direction.
Advance appointments are necessary and can be arranged by contacting the UC Merced SBDC Regional Office at (877) UCM-SBDC (877.826.7232) or by emailing the office email@example.com. The EVC is located at 4111 Broad Street, San Luis Obispo. Appointments will be held from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
