What people are saying about the Collin SBDC…
The counselors and the programs at the Collin SBDC have been a very valuable resource for us. We are an established, $90 million company with over 100 employees, so when I saw the word “startup” in their marketing materials I was a little hesitant. My doubts were quickly put to rest when I saw the depth of experience of the counselors. Not only have we benefitted from working with their very talented counselors, I have also been impressed with their willingness to work so hard to help us find the answers we need.
The Collin Small Business Development Center has been instrumental in helping us reach goals, in providing creative outlets for marketing success, and in nurturing the confidence necessary to push forth in a new professional arena. The idea of a business center, that focuses on the support and success of community members is a treasure – and Marta Frey and her team are golden.
An hour invested with Kelly DeWitt at the Collin SBDC relieved me of hours of research when relocating my business from California to Texas!
The Collin Small Business Development Center is a great organization that provides future business owners with the resources that they need to become successful. Their courteous staff, excellent courses, and highly knowledgeable advisors supported me in securing a business loan for my small start-up. I highly recommend the Collin SBDC for anyone interested in starting their own business or looking for ways to expand their current venture.
After doing some research it was clear to me that the Collin Small Business Development Center was a resource I needed to reach out for help/guidance. Sure enough my visit was quite helpful giving instructions to our next steps, and also encouragement/support. Today we have our company incorporated, products and packaging ready thanks to a great advise from CSBDC which I highly recommend to any start up.

When I first decided to start my Catering Company, the first place I visited was the Collin County Small Business Development Center. That was about 6 years ago.

Collin SBDC has been instrumental in the success of my business, a pediatric therapy practice. Marta Frey helped me get started 14 years ago by providing resources for developing a business plan and establishing a line of credit. Over the years SBDC has been helpful with marketing and management strategies. Now, I am considering my exit plans as I near retirement. Kelly DeWitt has provided valuable information and perspective as I approach this important final step of the business process. I am forever grateful for this fantastic community resource!
SBDC’s attentive mentoring teaches you how to manage complex business issues, understand enterprise and industry specific trends as well as build, maintain, and leverage networks of professional relationships.
