America's SBDC Client Showcase

Pace University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Director Andrew Flamm joined New York SBDC State Director Brian Goldstein, Associate State Director for Operations & Finance Tammy Mooney, and Associate State Director for Strategic Planning & Organizational Development Mary Hoffman in Washington D.C., where they met colleagues from throughout the America's SBDC network to share best practices and celebrate client successes from the nearly 1,000 SBDC locations nationwide. The highlight of the visit was attending the sixth annual America’s SBDC Client Showcase hosted by ASBDC President and CEO Charles “Tee” Rowe.

As part of the showcase, Pace SBDC client Geopipe was selected as one of ten SBDC clients from throughout the nation to host an informational table to highlight their innovative suite of services. Geopipe Founder/CEO Christopher Mitchell represented the firm, and connected with fellow entrepreneurs and government representatives to explore further business growth opportunities as they build on the $750,000 SBIR Phase II grant award they received through the National Science Foundation. Check out the client success story for more detail.

The showcase offered opportunities to learn more about these innovative businesses, and its attendees included Members of Congress and staffers from the House's Committee on Small Businesses, chaired by Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez.

Mr. Rowe also highlighted the impact SBDCs have nationally, including 17.7% job growth for SBDC clients (compared with 1.5% nationally) and that every Federal dollar spent on the SBDC network helped small businesses access $45.47 in new capital.
