 Nationwide resources, locally responsive... 

You may have noticed our new "brand identity" for the SOU Small Business Development Center. Our new brand better reflects that your local SOU SBDC is not only part of the 19 Oregon SBDC Network, but also part of America's SBDC Network of over 1000 Centers across the U.S. We are "America's SBDC-Oregon." This new branding better reflects that these statewide and nationwide resources are available to you as well.
