SBDC Rebrand – New look, new websites, same services

By Portage County Business Council

Welcome to a new look and new website for the Wisconsin Small Business Development Center!

Changes at the University of Wisconsin System, which helps make the SBDC work possible, have driven the rebranding. The SBDC now lives within the Institute for Business & Entrepreneurship at UW System after being moved from UW  Extension as part of a major University of Wisconsin System reorganization. Changes at the state level have led to this rebranding effort. The state office saw this as a great opportunity to revamp the Wisconsin SBDC website.

The Wisconsin SBDC Network supports entrepreneurs and business owners through no-cost, confidential consulting and business education. Their regional expertise is accessible to anyone anywhere across 13 locations.

SBDC felt this was an important opportunity to make their website more client-friendly. Improvements include mobile optimization, a focus on business stage/goals, a searchable calendar of classes and enhanced staff bios (see links at the bottom of the staff page) to show the strength of the professionals serving you.

They are proud to help businesses start and grow across Wisconsin. And are proud of the impact we make to our clients and our communities. 

Recently, SBDC at UW-Stevens Point also revamped their website as part of the website revamp for the Continuing Education Department. You can view the new portion of their UWSP site by clicking here.
