Alaska Small Business Development Center
Providing business guidance, services and resources to Alaskan entrepreneurs
The Alaska Small Business Development Center (SBDC) provides free consulting services and low cost educational programs to entrepreneurs looking to start or grow their small business. The Alaska SBDC business advisers work with entrepreneurs in confidential, one-to-one sessions in the areas of management, marketing, sales, finance, accounting and other disciplines required for small business growth, expansion and innovation.
Since its inception in October 1986, the Alaska SBDC has evolved into a network of 8 centers, including four additional specialized business assistance programs operating under the guidance of the State Director. The Alaska SBDC is funded, in part, by the U.S. Small Business Administration, as well as matching funds from the state of Alaska, and contributions from partner boroughs, cities, and other sponsors throughout the state. This statewide program is hosted by the University of Alaska Anchorage.
The Small Business Development Center Program was initiated by the SBA in 1977. The Small Business Development Center Act of 1980, (PL 96-302), established this pilot project as a national program.
The Alaska SBDC staff is comprised of highly qualified, experienced business professionals, many with business ownership experience, and/or advanced degrees in business. All business advisors are certified through the Alaska SBDC’s Professional Certification program. This program offers the initial training minimums expected of all our business advisors, plus provides ongoing continuing professional education.
