South Carolina Small Business Development Center

        Small Business Development Center of South Carolina


The SC Small Business Development Centers exist to advance South Carolina’s economic development by helping entrepreneurs grow successful businesses. The SBDC provides one-on-one counseling as a free service to the community, and all information shared is held in strict confidence. Counselors assist existing businesses with issues of expansion funding, cash flow management and strategic plan analysis. The SBDC also helps startups with business plan development, marketing and loan packaging. Among the counselors are specialists in PTAC and government procurement, manufacturing, and import/export concerns. The SBDC also offers seminars and training courses throughout the year for a nominal fee. Counseling sessions are set up by appointment. The Small Business Development Centers have two offices in the Charleston area. An appointment can be set up by calling 740-6160 for the North Charleston service center located at 2430 Mall Drive, Suite 155, or by calling 953-6007 for the Citadel service center located at Room 256 of Bond Hall.
