About the Idaho Small Business Development Center

A Tradition of Service

The Idaho Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is a statewide, university-based organization which has been helping small businesses succeed since 1986. Everyday, experienced Idaho SBDC consultants meet with clients – just like you – to provide guidance in developing and growing a successful business.  Statistics show that our clients outperform their peers typically achieving 5 times the sales growth than the average Idaho small business.

With six office locations throughout the state, each affiliated with one of Idaho’s colleges or universities, the Idaho SBDC is uniquely positioned to serve as a focal point for linking together our partners from higher education, the private business community, and federal, state and local government.
