The Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce is the new host for the Alameda County Small Business Development Center (ACSBDC). ACSBDC is now at 475 14th Street, Suite 100, Oakland.
After an open solicitation process that concluded in January, the Northern California SBDC Lead Center announced the intent to award up to $215,000 in federal funds to the Oakland Chamber to host the local SBDC office and take over the center's day-to-day operations.
The ACSBDC provides free, one-on-one consulting and low-cost trainings to more than 2,000 small businesses in the County, annually. The SBDC is a nationwide program which is funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration and local match funding to help small businesses start and grow in their communities.
