Celebrating Small Business Resources: SBDC Day 2021

On March 17th, the Pace University Small Business Development Center (SBDC), along with SBDCs all around the country, will celebrate #SBDC Day, a national, collective proclamation of the impact SBDCs have on the success of our nation’s dreamers, innovators and doers - America’s small businesses. SBDC Day unites the nearly 1,000 SBDC centers across the country and the hundreds of thousands of clients we serve by sharing small business client success stories and notable impacts SBDCs collectively have in the communities we serve.

To commemorate SBDC Day 2021, we wanted to spotlight some key aspects of the Pace University SBDC's work to support small businesses in New York City, as well as share the stories of select small business clients. You can read more in-depth client stories on our COVID-19 Features and Success Stories pages.
