America’s SBDCs help make the dream of small business ownership a reality for more Americans — creating jobs and opportunities that build communities throughout the nation.
See how the Florida SBDC has served its communities.
My advice [is] to look up the Florida SBDC at USF and use them as much as you can. They've been just so much help in not only helping us acquire the business, but also in helping us grow. They're that shoulder for us to lean on when we need help.

When Life Gives You a Pandemic
Once COVID-19 impacted the country and schools began to close, Nicole Anyadike, owner of Kidology Enterprises, turned to the Florida SBDC at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) for help shifting her educational enrichment program business virtually. Anyadike received consulting services, help accessing capital, and guidance to kick-start Kidology Enterprises Virtual Academy. As a result of Kidology's virtual experience and interactive STEAM kit, Anyadike has seen sales increase by 90 percent.
