The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center at UW-Madison is part of a statewide network supporting entrepreneurs and business owners through no-cost, confidential consulting and targeted educational programs.
The Small Business Development Center at UW-Madison helps entrepreneurs succeed at any stage. We offer no-cost, confidential consulting and business education across a wide region, primarily serving Dane, Sauk and Columbia counties.
The Small Business Development Centers were established by the Small Business Administration in 1980 with legislation written by Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson. The mission of the Wisconsin SBDC is to provide education, referrals, sophisticated tools and resources to help businesses evolve while delivering value to our stakeholders.
We do business consulting with residents of Dane, Sauk, and Columbia Counties. Our classes are open enrollment; anyone can attend.
