#SBDCDay 2022: Celebrating Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs

On March 16th, 2022, the Pace University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) joined nearly 1,000 SBDC centers across the country to celebrate SBDC Day 2022. #SBDCDay is a national, collective proclamation of the impact America’s Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) have on the success of our nation’s dreamers, innovators, and doers – America’s small businesses.



To commemorate SBDC Day 2022, 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.
