NH SBDC Celebrates 30 Years

Client companies come from all sectors seeking advice on financing, improving operations, business sustainability best practices, bringing new products to market, and where to start in launching a new business or purchasing an existing one.

The NH SBDC’s services are offered in regional offices and satellite locations by certified business advisors who provide one-on-one long-term management advising to small businesses at no cost to the client. SBDC business advisors are experienced business owners and managers and are certified through the New England SBDC Professional Development Program.

We offer free online courses in our e-Learning for Entrepreneurs program, resources and tools in our Resource Center, and environmental management advising and education through the Business Sustainability Program.

NH SBDC is an outreach program of the University of New Hampshire's Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics, and a cooperative venture of the U.S. Small Business Administration, the State of New Hampshire Department of Business and Economic Affairs, the University of New Hampshire, and the private sector. A part of 64 SBDC programs nationwide, the NH SBDC was fully accredited in 2015 by the Association of Small Business Development Centers.
