What's New at the Region 2000 Small Business Development Center

Have you seen the Region 2000 Small Business Development Center’s new website at www.region2000SBDC.com.  Here, you will find not only a simple form to request free business counseling, but a fantastic list of local, regional, state, and federal resources for your business. The Region 2000 SBDC is now on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. Small businesses in the area should be sure to follow our pages. In addition to keeping you up to date with the latest classes and resources from the Region 2000 SBDC, they also share tips, information, and other items of interest. You will even see information, workshops, and classes from the Virginia SBDC and the Small Business Administration. Even if you don’t “do” social media, you can still use the fantastic Pinterest page. It’s like a resource library with tons of tips and ideas for Region 2000 businesses. We have information about everything from farms as businesses to the latest ideas on financing your growing company. 

As always if you can’t find the answer through one of our web resources, then just you can always use the telephone to schedule a free one on one appointment with a business counselor. You can reach the Region 2000 Small Business Development Center at: 434-832-7295.
