The SBDC's number one priority is to support and empower small businesses growth. Through a team of professionals, the SBDC helps entrepreneurs develop and expand operations. In addition to general business needs, the Illinois SBDC at Build Bronzeville will assist with specific resources for the Food & Beverage Industry and the Creative Economy.
We are currently in need of volunteers to serve as business mentors, subject matter experts, or workshop presenters. SBDC Volunteers may provide assistance to the Center's clients in the areas of Accounting, Business & Strategic Planning, Business Financing, Marketing & Sales, Cash Management / Forecasting, Insurance, Web Design & Marketing, Technology Issues, Legal Issues, and Business Taxes. The time commitment is flexible, and can always be virtual if you like or join us in the office.
If you’re looking for ways to give back post-retirement or during your spare time, this could be a great opportunity to have a meaningful impact. Feel good knowing you helped someone achieve their goals and dreams, give back to your community by helping small businesses thrive and drive economic growth, and become a recognized leader in your local business community.
