About the SBDC
The Portland Community College (PCC) Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is part of the Oregon Small Business Development Center Network (OSBDCN).
The Oregon Small Business Development Network was launched in 1983 and is part of a national network of Small Business Development Centers. The Oregon Network is a well-established partnership between 17 Oregon community colleges, two state universities, the US Small Business Administration and the Oregon Business Development Department.
We work with businesses in every industry and at every stage of growth from start-ups to well-established companies, from one employee to 500. In addition to no-cost confidential advising, we offer training that cover a wide range of business topics and resources to help your business start and grow.
Our mission is “Helping Build Oregon’s Best Businesses,” and that is what we do.
The Oregon Small Business Development Centers are partially funded by the US Small Business Administration and the Oregon Business Development Department.
