The Virginia SBDC network is the most extensive business development program in the Commonwealth. The network is a strategic alliance between our sponsors the U.S. Small Business Administration, George Mason University and local partners throughout Virginia.

The SBDC is partially funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration. SBA’s funding is not an endorsement of any products, opinions or services. SBA funded programs are extended to the public on a non-discriminatory basis.

The Virginia SBDC Network is a member of and accredited by the Association of Small Business Development Centers.


The network partners include premier institutions in the community such as universities, community colleges, chambers of commerce, municipalities and economic development organizations.
