Boost your business’s success

The Small Business Management Program is the cornerstone of the multiple support services offered by the SBDC to both new and existing businesses. In the pandemic period – and the post-pandemic recovery to follow – cohort-based programs like the SBM are more valuable than ever. 

SBM is a nine-month program (October-June). Classes are once a month lasting three hours and are held in Lincoln City in the morning and the south county in the afternoon on alternate weeks to better accommodate all types of business  The 2-hour monthly one-on-one advising sessions are flexible around your busy schedule, with early morning, or evenings sessions available.  We will meet with you at the Oregon Coast Community College location nearest you, or by video conference or phone. There are also make-up classes available if you miss a class. Several scholarships are available and can make this class affordable – even free, for some businesses.

Learn relevant business concepts to help you to identify and prioritize outcomes. You will learn from proven business coaches on how to develop a plan and achieve your goals. It applies directly and immediately towards improving your business.
