Southwestern Oklahoma State Wins Biz Center Award

Some of the news out of this week’s National Small Business Week celebration. From an SBA email,

The Small Business Development Center Service Excellence and Innovation
Center Award honors an SBDC Service Center for its excellence in providing
value to small businesses and advancing program delivery and management
through innovation. The Southwestern Oklahoma State University SBDC
provides key resources and services to the state’s small business community,
and is part of the network of the Southeastern Oklahoma State University
SBDCs. The Southwestern SBDC has consistently exceeded its goal of capital
infusion. These funds, received from SBA loans, private bank loans, venture
capital, and individual direct investments to help local firms get started,
totaled more than $16 million last year alone. In addition, it assisted in the
start-up of 37 new businesses. The Center is known state-wide for its
reputation of dedication to the success of entrepreneurs, particularly the
underserved. It serves 15 rural counties of southwest Oklahoma and,
specializes in providing counseling and training, financial assistance, and
assistance to veterans.
