about us

The Indiana Small Business Development Center Network (ISBDC) has been serving small businesses and entrepreneurs since 1984. Yet after more than 20 years of expert training, counsel, and networking, the ISBDC remains one of Indiana's best-kept secrets. As part of the ISBDC network serving the counties of St. Joseph, Elkhart, Marshall, Fulton, and Kosciusko, the North Central SBDC has guided business owners to make more informed decisions, find additional funding, new partners and clients. So why shouldn't more entrepreneurs and small business owners, maybe you, use this valuable resource?
