McNeese to Celebrate National Small Business Development Center Day

(March 16, 2017) On Wednesday, March 22, the Louisiana Small Business Development Center at McNeese State University will join with hundreds of other SBDCs around the country to celebrate SBDC Day.

The event is the inaugural national, collective proclamation of the success and impact America’s SBDCs have in economic development and the small business community, according to Donna Little, director of the LSBDC at McNeese.

“We are happy to celebrate our success in helping entrepreneurs for more than 30 years. Our work is genuinely exciting and rewarding. We respect and treasure small business owners who work so hard to make their dreams come true,” said Little.
To commemorate SBDC Day, McNeese will host a reception from 4-6 p.m. in the Willis Noland Conference Room on the second floor of the McNeese SEED Center and this event is sponsored by Capital One.

“Some of our clients will be speaking about how our center has assisted them,” she said. “We will also have a proclamation from Lake Charles Mayor Randy Roach, there will be other special guests and refreshments from some of our clients’ businesses to showcase their products.”
