FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AUGUSTA – State Senator Amy Volk (R-Cumberland), chair of the Labor Commerce, Research and Economic Development Committee (LCRED), congratulates Maine Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) on celebrating their 40th business anniversary.

“Since 1977, Maine SBDC has helped countless Mainers start over 2,000 new businesses, create and save over 13,400 jobs and obtain over $563 million in capital to open the doors and expand,” said Sen. Volk. “These services have been invaluable, as small businesses are the backbone of Maine’s economy.”

“Home-grown jobs are responsible for more than 80 percent of total job creation in states including Maine,” said Rep. Ryan Fecteau (D-Biddeford), LCRED House chair. “The SBDC works every day to make that possible. Our state’s economy, small businesses and communities owe them a great deal.”

Through locations around the state, Maine SBDC leverages federal, state and higher education resources to provide no-cost business advising and training to assist entrepreneurs and spur economic growth. For more information, visit www.mainesbdc.org.
