SBDC Day to be celebrated March 21

Cheyenne – Earlier this month, Gov. Matt Mead (R-WY) signed a proclamation designating March 21, 2018 as Small Business Development Center Day in Wyoming. On Wednesday, Wyoming entrepreneurs will join thousands across the country in sharing their success stories thanks to assistance from their local Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Last year, #SBDCDay was one of the top trending hashtags on Twitter.

For 23 years, the Wyoming SBDC Network has helped entrepreneurs start or grow their businesses through regional offices throughout the state. In 2017 alone, the Wyoming SBDC Network assisted 1,365 entrepreneurs, resulting in 107 new businesses, 971 jobs created or saved and a capital impact of $7,752,010 for the state’s economy.

“Wyoming’s entrepreneurs and small business owners play a critical role in diversifying our state’s economy,” said Jill Kline, state director of the Wyoming SBDC Network. “SBDC Day not only recognizes the nearly 1,000 small business development centers across the nation, but it also serves as an opportunity for the 57,000 Wyoming residents we have served in the past two decades to share their success stories with the public.”

To learn more about SBDC Day, and to join the movement, join the Wyoming SBDC Network as they go live at the top of every hour from 8am to 3pm on March 21 from their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/wyomingsbdc/
