Southwestern Oregon Community College SBDC Director
The Southwestern Oregon Community College Small Business Development Center has been an invaluable resource during the planning process. With the help of SWOCC SBDC Director, Arlene Soto, the business plan came together.
I would recommend to anybody starting a business to take a class. It’s very affordable and it’s worth it.
The (SBDC) classes were fabulous. They really helped prepare you.
