Indiana’s Small Business Development Centers (ISBDCs) helped clients create an estimated 1,777 jobs; save 2,000 jobs; start 217 businesses; obtain $43 million in financing; and increase sales by $131 million in 2009.
15.41% of all pre-venture ISBDC clients started a business after receiving business counseling services in 2009.
The $43,202,251 in capital raised by ISBDC clients receiving ISBDC assistance suggests that each dollar expended on the ISBDC program was later leveraged by approximately $11.33 in new capital raised from external sources.
