NYSBDC- Visit to Washington

February 28, 2019

Pace University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Director Andrew Flamm joined colleagues from the New York SBDC network for a recent trip to Washington, DC, where they met with NYS Congressional representatives and/or their staff members to highlight the free one-on-one business advisement, training and market research offered by SBDCs to help entrepreneurs grow or launch their small business. The trip’s highlights included meetings with a number of Members of Congress, including Congressman Adriano Espaillat and Congressman Max Rose, as well as staff from the House Small Business Committee, chaired by Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez

 

The group also attended the fifth annual America’s SBDC (ASBDC) Client Showcase and Reception hosted by ASBDC President & CEO Charles “Tee” Rowe. The ASBDC has highlighted that job growth for SBDC clients is nearly 12 times greater than job growth for average businesses, and SBDC client sales growth is over 4 times greater than sales growth for businesses in general. Further, clients of the nation’s nearly 1,000 SBDCs started a new business every 35 minutes, created a new job every 5.6 minutes and generated $100,000 in new sales every 7.5 minutes.
