COMMUNITY IMPACT

Over the last ten years, the SBDC at LCCC has earned its reputation as a one-stop shop for free expert-level advising for entrepreneurs wanting to start, sustain or grow a business.

 

Since 2012, funding to support our center has more than doubled and our staff has grown to include four full-time employees and eight consultants used on a regular basis.
