It’s is all about business at the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Whether you need business coaching, help starting your business, developing a business plan or need help selling to the government, the Rose State SBDC consultant, Sandy Stephens, can help. The office works with entrepreneurs and small business owners at no cost to develop the planning, management and financial skills necessary to make their business thrive.
Our goal is to deliver one-on-one counseling, research and referral for individuals creating or expanding their business. Assistance is provided in the following areas:
- Business Plan Development
- Marketing Assessments
- Cost Analysis
- Financial Analysis
- Capital Resources, Financial Packaging & Forecasting
- Accounting and Bookkeeping
Assistance is also provided in specialty areas such as Government Procurement Assistance. Federal, state and local governments already spend billions of dollars on goods and services every year. Federal purchasing offices are often required to set aside contracts or portions of contracts for exclusive bidding by small and/or minority-owned businesses. In addition, major prime contractors are required to subcontract part of their work out to small firms.
The Oklahoma Small Business Development Centers are funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
