Small Business Development Center

Growing Georgia’s Businesses

The UGA - SBDC at Kennesaw State University's Coles College of Business offers entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses in Cobb and Cherokee County the tools and information they need to thrive.

As part of our mission to grow Georgia’s businesses and educate business owners, the UGA SBDC at KSU offers no-cost, confidential business consulting services paired with classes and training programs for established business owners and those starting a business.

In addition to free, one-on-one consulting services, we offer continuing education in a variety of subjects, including:

  • Loan preparation
  • Pricing strategies
  • Financial score-carding
  • Digital marketing strategy and SEO
  • Business plan development
  • Product development

We were the first Small Business Development Center in Georgia to offer online instruction for entrepreneurs, and continue that tradition by making some of our continuing education courses available online as well as in person.
