About Us

The Indiana Small Business Development Center (Indiana SBDC), which is housed within the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, helps small businesses start, grow, finance, innovate, and transition through no-cost, confidential business advising and training. The Indiana SBDC was established in 1985 with funding support from the U.S. Small Business Administration and State of Indiana and has worked with over 50,000 entrepreneurs and small businesses. With a network of 10 regional offices throughout the state, the Indiana SBDC helps Hoosier entrepreneurs and small businesses start stronger, grow faster, and work smarter.
Since 1985, we’ve helped over
entrepreneurs and
small businesses.


Thank you to our local partners that host the Indiana SBDC regional offices, creating local destinations more efficient for Hoosier entrepreneurs and small business owners to receive SBDC services and assistance.
