Small Business Planning

The Renaissance Center Marin hosts the Small Business Development Center, a program that provides high quality business and economic assistance to small businesses and nascent entrepreneurs in order to promote growth, expansion, innovation, increased productivity, and management improvement. One of the key aspects of the SBDC program is to provide free one-on-one advising with skilled professionals who have been in the trenches and know the ins and outs of owning a business.
