Did you know that the Alaska Small Business Development Center at UAA has assisted nearly 1,900 Alaska businesses and provided training for another 6,200 in 125 communities across the state in the last fiscal year?
Since July, SBDC-mentored businesses have raised $52 million in new capital –– an SBDC record.
The center has launched more than 160 new businesses, and supported more than 7,100 jobs in Alaska, and a recent SBDC poll found that more than 20 percent of these businesses are run by UA graduates –– exemplifying UA’s critical contributions to Alaska’s business world and success.
The Alaska SBDC is part of UAA’s Business Enterprise Institute and provides advising opportunities and tools to help entrepreneurs start and grow their small businesses and contribute to the Alaska economy. Advisors work with businesses on a variety of topics including management, marketing, sales, finance accounting and innovation.
