Business Assistance Team: Small Business Development Center
The Loudoun County Business Assistance Team works in partnership with the Loudoun Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at MEC (Mason Enterprise Center), formerly the Loudoun SBDC. In spring 2015, the Loudoun SBDC announced that it was transferring responsibility for providing small business counseling and seminars to George Mason University’s Mason Enterprise Center, 202 Church Street, S.E. in Leesburg.
In late 2015, Eric Byrd
was hired as the manager of the Small Business Development Center at MEC-Leesburg. The center is once again accepting clients and has launched programming, including "Start Your Business in Loudoun." Call 703-466-0466 for more information.
Anyone interested in starting a small business or growing a business also is encouraged to take advantage of the free resources provided by SCORE, a a nonprofit association of thousands of volunteer business counselors throughout the U.S. and its territories, supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
