America’s #SBDC Client Showcase – 15 Days to the Congressional Showcase

Washington, DC skyline

America’s Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) are excited to announce the Client Showcase Reception is back again this year! The following SBDC clients will be joining us on Capitol Hill on February 6th:

• SpiderSense (Illinois)
• BlueAtomVR (California)
• Motus (Alabama)
• SimUCare (Delaware)
• Veterans MFG (Texas)
• Bearcreek Smokehouse (Texas)
• Rex Specs (Wyoming)
• Superior Bath House (Arkansas)
• Torklift (Washington)
• Stratom (Colorado)
• CPR Tools (Florida)
• Micro-LAM Technologies (Michigan)
• Wildcard Brewing Company (California)
• Hometown Trolley (Wisconsin)

To prepare for our big day, we will be doing a countdown to the reception on February 6, 2017. Each day we will share a story about the clients attending the reception, who they are, and how they worked with their local SBDCs.

What SBDCs do, their impact and value to aspiring and growing businesses, is best told through their clients’ success. SBDC clients not only have revolutionary products and services, they are hardworking, dedicated, and a group we couldn’t be more proud of. We only wish we could feature all the thousands of businesses we help every year.

Did you know? The 63 state and regional Small Business Development Center networks provide free one-on-one consulting to small businesses at nearly 1,000 locations throughout the nation.

SBDC clients:

> start a new business every 30 minutes,
> create a new job every 5 minutes,
> generate $100,000 in new sales every 7.5 minutes, and
> raise $100,000 in capital every 11.4 minutes.

Job growth for SBDC clients is nearly 10 times greater than job growth for average businesses, and SBDC client sales growth is nearly four times greater than sales growth for businesses in general.

Let the countdown begin!
