The South Central Minnesota Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is pleased to acknowledge a 2011 contribution of $500 from State Bank of Fairmont to support the organization's no cost, professional consulting services, workshops, training and other business development services.

It is impossible to overstate the importance of small business as the engine that drives Minnesota's economy. When they succeed, we all succeed. That's why the Small Business Development Center is important.

"In the midst of rapid change and challenging economic conditions, SBDCs remain a constant friend and advocate of area companies," said Julie Nelson, SBDC's program coordinator. "We are a source of realistic, level-headed guidance for businesses at every stage."

The South Central SBDC's primary partners are Minnesota State University, Mankato, Region Nine Development Commission, North Mankato Port Authority, South Central College, Greater Mankato Growth and Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation.

Minnesota's SBDCs are recognized as the state's pre-eminent, nationally accredited provider of professional business development consultation services, generating significant economic impact and return on investment.
