Mission: Accelerate Ohio’s economy by helping people start, sustain and grow their businesses! The Northwest State Small Business Development Center is located in B114 on Northwest State’s Archbold Campus. Since 2016, the SBDC has offered individualized, confidential advising and entrepreneurial training programs to current and prospective small business owners in Defiance, Fulton, Henry, Paulding and Williams Counties. Services are typically free of charge, although some workshops and seminars may require a fee.

Our center works to meet the diverse needs of the small business community by linking them with resources from federal, state and local governments; the educational community; and the economic development community.
