Responding to frequent corporate layoffs of highly skilled employees across the region, the Delaware SBDC and Pennsylvania SBDC work together to re-purpose and grow the enormous technology talent available in the region. The two SBDCs leverage unique, complementing services and expertise into a powerful economic recovery program that spurs the growth of new and established small firms, based primarily on leveraging technology development and innovation.

We’ve developed specific resources to help innovators, particularly those new to entrepreneurship, navigate the often confusing entrepreneurial ecosystem.
