MADISON – Wisconsin has a big reason to celebrate the third annual national SBDC Day on March 20, 2019: The state’s Small Business Development Centers achieved a capital investment total last year exceeding $100 million for the first time.


SBDCs have provided entrepreneurs the education and resources they need to start, manage and grow since 1980. 


Healthy Credit Loan Initiative: A new option to help small businesses prosper in Southwest Wisconsin

The Southwest Wisconsin Small Business Development Center (SBDC) and the Wisconsin Women's Business Initiative Corporation (WWBIC) want to help strengthen small businesses with a healthy credit option.


Heavy credit-card debt and high-interest loans can burden, hamper or even threaten small business operations. But owners don’t have to feel trapped. It is important to know that other businesses have experienced these same issues and there are free resources available to help.
