Continuing to guide and support businesses through pandemic recovery efforts, the Ohio University Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs has led a multi-faceted expansion in its service area, offerings and capacity in southeastern and eastern Ohio.

In recognition of the Ohio University SBDC’s consistently strong performance, the state of Ohio’s lead SBDC office and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) expanded the Ohio University SBDC’s service region into Licking County and northern Fairfield County in June, while adding additional bandwidth to western Muskingum County. Additionally, Ohio University SBDC expanded its service offerings by adding the Export Assistance program.
