About the SBDC

Who We Are

We are a government agency with a mission to help small businesses succeed.

Because we receive funding from the federal government and State of Texas, we are able to offer free and low-cost services to our clients. Services include business plan assistance, financial projections, tax information, marketing plans, seminars and workshops, feasibility studies, and research services.

Our office is one of six in the Northwest Texas SBDC Region and we assist clients in the top 17 counties of the Big Country. Our sister centers in Amarillo, Granbury, Lubbock, Midland-Odessa, and Wichita Falls serve clients throughout the rest of West Texas. Not located in West Texas? No problem! There are over 1,000 SBDC across the nation with one assigned to every area of the U.S. Search online to locate the SBDC nearest you.

How We Work With You

We work primarily on a consulting basis.

Feel free to call us at 325.670.0300 to have a preliminary conversation to begin registration as a client. The cost associated with consulting is paid for by the Small Business Administration. Our offices are open normal business hours.

What We Do

We help people start and run businesses, and we do this in a lot of ways. We like to sit down with clients, or prospective business owners, and engage in one-on-one consulting sessions. Training, business plan writing,  and market research are among the key services we provide. Aside from providing legal counsel and doing your taxes, there’s hardly anything we can’t do to help your fledgling business.
