The Business Development Board of Martin County, in partnership with Indian River State College, ensured that Martin County small businesses and entrepreneurs have access to professional assistance through a Small Business Development Center. The SBDC has full-time staff to assist small business owners that need assistance with start-up, expansion or other issues related to business ownership.

Small Business Development Centers all over the State of Florida have assisted potential and existing business owners by providing advice, training and information they need to start, grow, and profit. With funding from the U.S. Small Business Administration and partners ranging from institutions of higher learning to state agencies to municipalities, to private organizations, SBDCs are able to offer this management assistance to business owners at little or no cost.
