Wharton Small Business Development Center
Helping Businesses Start, Grow and Prosper
The Wharton Small Business Development Center (SBDC), a division of the Snider Research Center of Wharton Entrepreneurship, is one of 18 SBDCs in Pennsylvania. We provide business assistance to small businesses in the Greater Philadelphia region. Thousands of small businesses and entrepreneurs have benefited from our support since our founding in 1980. We hope that you too will benefit from our services.
Funding support and resources are provided by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania through the Department of Community and Economic Development; through a cooperative agreement with the U. S. Small Business Administration, and through support from The University of Pennsylvania. All services are extended to the public on a non-discriminatory basis.
