Regional Small Business Development Center has DL office hours at M State

The West Central Minnesota Small Business Development Center provides no cost, confidential consulting to assist people as they start, build or grow their business.

     And that help is now available in Detroit Lakes.

     The Small Business Development Center partners with Business & Entrepreneurial Services to offer local office hours.

     A consultant from the Small Business Development Center will be at M State, Detroit Lakes on the second Tuesday of each month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to meet with small business owners and entrepreneurs.

     The goal of the Small Business Development Center is to provide professional, one-on-one business assistance and free information.

     In doing so, small businesses in Minnesota will stimulate the economy and promote new job opportunities.

     The consulting includes, but is not limited to, development, financial projections, expansion, diversification, franchising, loan packaging, patents, marketing plans and business planning.

     The SBDC also cooperates with many organizations to provide a variety of business training workshops and events.

     Scheduled appointments with an SBDC consultant are recommended, but walk-ins are also welcome.

     To schedule an appointment at the Detroit Lakes location, contact the SBDC at (218) 299-3037 or email

     The Small Business Development Center is hosted by the Offutt School of Business at Concordia College and is located at the 1310 8th St. South, Grant Center 220 Moorhead.
