The Florida SBDC at University of South Florida region is a resource for local media on matters of growth acceleration for small to medium enterprises, pre-venture and start-up business issues, international trade, government contracting, business certification, finance, and more.
We are also the contact for the State of Florida Emergency Bridge Loan Program in the University of South Florida 10-county region. We serve as the program administrator for the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. As a result of Hurricane Irma, we have facilitated closings on more than $3M in disaster recovery funds to local businesses (as of 11/8/17).
We can provide comments to local and national media on local business issues, and speakers for economic development agency and business organization meetings and conferences. To find the appropriate contact for your needs, contact:
