Typically, this special day is celebrated with social media campaigns, public relations initiatives, online and in-person events. In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic and its unprecedented impact on everyone's lives, especially small businesses, we have decided to focus this fourth annual SBDC Day on how SBDCs can help their local small businesses and clients prepare and persevere in the weeks to come.

We encourage all entrepreneurs and small businesses to check out and bookmark our new "COVID-19 Small Business Resources" webpage. We will continue to add information, resources and opportunities for businesses that will help them keep their business afloat as they navigate through this challenging period. And check out your local SBDCs as well, they are there to help.

SBDC clients need their advisors' expertise now more than ever. For over 40 years SBDCs have been building trust, building communities and advising small businesses through financial crises, natural disasters, and other misfortunes - this year is no different.

The El Paso SBDC is following the current climate and concerns about COVID-19. Our offices are currently closed, we are scheduled to return on Monday, March 23. Should an extended closure occur, our team is ready to help you navigate available resources, answer business questions and be a trusted partner for your business.
