Small Business Development Center Services offered at MCAC
Montgomery County Action Council (MCAC) recently partnered with the Kansas Small Business Development Center (Kansas SBDC) out of Pittsburg State University to become an outreach center for small businesses. This partnership will allow MCAC to continue serving small businesses in the county with more counseling, extended programs, and services.
In addition to individual counseling, the SBDC offers a full range of training for small business owners. Both online and in-class options for training are available for small business owners. Classes cover a wide variety of topics surrounding running a small business. For more information about the Kansas SBDC out of PSU, please visit their website.
This addition of funding has allowed MCAC to expand staffing and bring Lisa Kuehn on board part-time as a Small Business & Marketing Specialist. Lisa will be working directly with small businesses counseling them on writing their business plan and establishing their financial projections so they can be open for business in Montgomery County.
"We are excited about this opportunity for MCAC to better assist our new and expanding small businesses in the Montgomery County region," said Executive Director Trisha Purdon. "Lisa has been an excellent addition to our team and we are excited to grow our services with Lisa's help."
The Kansas Small Business Development Center (Kansas SBDC) is part of America’s Small Business Development Center Network, the most comprehensive small business assistance network in the United States. Their purpose is to help existing and aspiring Kansas business owners achieve their goals in a complex local, regional, and global marketplace. They work to understand your business and its opportunities by forging relationships with your team that facilitate trust, cooperation, and ultimately meet your definition of success.
