Our Impact

SBDC Assistance is Revenue Positive

SBDC long-term advising assistance is highly valuable from a public policy perspective because it returns tax revenues to state and federal governments, as well as value and capital to its clients, that are greater than the direct cost of providing the service.

For every $1.00 invested in the Texas South-West Border SBDC, a return of $4.70 is generated.
