Small Business Resources

Monmouth Ocean Small Business Development CenterThe Small Business Development Center (Monmouth/Ocean SBDC) at Brookdale Community College, established in 1979, is part of a national network   of university/college based centers that provide comprehensive counseling to small business and educational opportunities to small business owners and potential business owners.

By linking resources of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the New Jersey Department of Commerce and Economic Development and the private sector with those of Rutgers Business School Graduate Programs and other college based centers throughout the state, the Monmouth/Ocean SBDC is able to assist the growth of the small business community in Monmouth and Ocean counties.

In existence for over 30 years, the center counsels clients on matters relating to small business, from initial establishment to expansion. Free assistance is available at the centers or at your place of business. All counseling is confidential and person-to-person.

Small business owners have pressing business needs but limited time available for addressing them. Courses, workshops and conferences are designed to give managers, owners and potential owners the tools to analyze and resolve business problems and to keep abreast of educational, financial, research and international trade developments.

All programs are presented by highly-qualified specialists, including government representatives, faculty, business owners, and private consultants.
