About the Shasta-Cascade SBDC: Over the years, the Shasta-Cascade Small Business Development Center (SBDC) has helped small businesses in Shasta and Trinity Counties secure over $40 million in funding and increase their annual sales by over $50 million. During that time, our clients have started over 200 new businesses and created over 1,200 new jobs. The SBDC is a program of Cal-Poly Humboldt University and is mostly funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration and the California Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GO-Biz). In addition to workshops and trainings (such as the Capital Summit), SBDC advisors work with business clients in confidential, no-cost, one-on-one relationships by offering their guidance and expertise to help build better businesses.
