About the
Inclusivity Challenge

Over the last 40 years, the SBDC network has been helping entrepreneurs in all communities to start, grow, and pivot their small businesses and keep pace with the ever-changing marketplace.

The past year has brought forth unprecedented challenges. In 2021, we’re renewing our commitment to support entrepreneurs and businesses most impacted, to empower a more inclusive recovery.

"SBDCs have always focused on ensuring and expanding their outreach to underserved communities. The Inclusivity Challenge is a logical extension of those efforts."
