We’re really excited about all the great resource groups for Makers joining us this year. One of our favorites is the wonderful but often underutilized Florida Small Business Development Center at Hillsborough County (FSBDC) . Carol Johns, Director of the Hillsborough County FSBDC , told us more about what her office does.
The FSBDC at Hillsborough County provides professional and confidential one-on-one business consulting and no cost business training to help businesses in Hillsborough County start, grow and expand. Consultants are degreed and certified in various areas of business development and growth and work with clients to complete strategic planning, financial planning, growth strategies, marketing strategies, business continuity, exit strategies, business purchases, loan packaging, patents, and taking products to market.
Working together, our team of consultants either provide services needed by our clients or help to identify resources available to reach the clients goals.
The Hillsborough County FSBDC office is housed at the Entrepreneurship Collaborative Center at 2101 E. Palm Avenue, in Ybor City in Tampa, another fantastic resource for Hillsborough County entrepreneurs and small business owners. Stop by Booth 33 to visit with FSBDC at Hillsborough County to learn how they can help you.
