A Boost To Biz From SBDC


Many a small business person will tell you that they had the necessary skills to run a business, but lacked knowledge of marketing or some other critical area.

These are the areas that can be aided by Small Business Development Centers, like the one attached to Southern Oregon University in Medford (one of six in SW Oregon). 

In addition to offering assistance and classes, SBDCs also perform some educational outreach, including an upcoming Business Resource Forum (October 17). 

SBDC Director Jack Vitacco visits with Kimberly and Michael Hoyt of Artisan Eyeworks, who have used the services of the center.
