Building Businesses for New Hampshire’s Future

Since 1984, NH SBDC has helped over 106,000 entrepreneurs achieve their dreams of starting and growing a small business.  Our team’s commitment and dedication to the people and businesses of the Granite State has made the NH SBDC what it is today. 

We are tremendously proud of NH SBDC’s accomplishments and contributions to growing the State’s economy, and recognize that our success would not be possible without the support of our key partners: the U.S. Small Business Administration, the State of New Hampshire Department of Business and Economic Affairs, and the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire. In addition, we are fortunate to have an actively engaged volunteer Advisory Board, strong private sector partnerships, a growing network of economic development service providers, partner organizations that host our business advisors, and motivated students and faculty in NH’s higher education institutions looking for new ways to collaborate.
