The website of the Vermont Small Business Development Center welcomes visitors to “The #1 Resource for Small Business,” and it looks like they have to substance to back that up.

Funded by the Small Business Administration, the VT Department of Economic Development, and Vermont State Colleges, the VtSBDC offers free confidential coaching for existing businesses and low-cost training for entrepreneurs and business owners. Check out the Training tab for a rolling calendar of programs like Starting Your Own Small Business, Building a Sustainable Agricultural Business, and Introduction to Government Contracting, to name a few.

Besides offering its own programs, the VtSBDC serves as a clearinghouse of information on related agencies and organizations. Click on the Resources tab for many useful links, from demographic statistics to trade associations to government regulatory agencies.

Bottom line:  A terrific one-stop resource for small Vermont businesses.
