WEEKLY MINUTES: WISCONSIN SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER an interview with Michelle Somes-Booher

This week on madisonNoteworthy’s Weekly Minutes with Brandon Williams we interview Michelle Somes-Booher, the Director of The Small Business Development Center at UW-Madison.

Michelle provides us with some great information on this incredible local resource. The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is part of a statewide network of SBDCs that work with business owners and entrepreneurs to help them grow and thrive. The core mission of the SBDC is to help local owners launch, improve and grow their business. They are true supporters of  successful business and economic growth locally.

Michelle shares with us some of the many resources that the SBDC has to offer:

  • They have an answer line that is available for anyone to call and simply get feedback on their ideas, get questions answered, etc. The number is 1-800-940-7232 and they are open Monday through Thursday 9-4pm.
  • They also offer entrepreneurial education – special classes and seminars to get educated on a variety of business topics – click here to see some of their programs and classes.
  • And what might be the most exciting is the FREE consulting that they offer.
