Small Business Development Center: A Local Resource
Monday, September 14, 2020
The silence of a closed University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA) Downtown Campus stands in stark contrast to the hundreds of clients that have been seeking assistance and relief since the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the temporary closing of so many of San Antonio’s small businesses. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), over half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and small businesses are responsible for two-thirds of new jobs each year. Located in the Durango Building of the Downtown Campus is the UTSA Small Business Development Center (SBDC), a resource that small businesses are relying on now more than ever, for a light through the current crisis.
