Small Business Development Center

  • The MHCC Small Business Development Center supports entrepreneurs in creating, growing and running a successful business through one-on-one advising and training workshops. Oregon's SBDCs deliver our services to anyone who owns or operates a business or is planning to start a business. We work with businesses in every industry and at every stage of growth from start-ups to well-established companies, from one employee to 500. In addition to no-cost confidential advising, we offer training and online courses that cover a wide range of business topics.

    The Oregon Small Business Development Network was launched in 1983 and is part of a national network of Small Business Development Centers. The Oregon Network is a well-established partnership between 17 Oregon community colleges, two state universities, the US Small Business Administration and the Oregon Business Development Department.

    Our mission is "Helping Build Oregon's Best Businesses," and that is what we do.
