Watch the video with Hello Woodlands’s Jennifer Bruse and Miguel Lopez, Executive Director of the Lone Star College SBDC, to learn more about the expo:



The Small Business Development Center opened at the Lone Star College System, then known as the North Harris Montgomery Community College District, in November 1985. The center was the first opened by the University of Houston in the Gulf Coast region. As the first community college in the state of Texas to become an SBDC service center, Lone Star College System became a testing ground for the SBDC Network that now exists throughout the Gulf Coast region, with centers providing advising and training services in 32 southeast Texas counties.

America’s Small Business Development Center (ASBDC) Network provides management and technical assistance to more than one million small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs each year. Small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs can go to their local SBDCs for free, face-to-face business advising and low-cost training on writing business plans, accessing capital, marketing, regulatory compliance, international trade and more. The SBDCs are a partnership that includes Congress, SBA, the private sector, and the colleges, universities and state governments that manage SBDCs across the nation.
