Who We Are

small business

The AZSBDC Network works to help launch, grow and sustain small businesses in Arizona. We are Arizona’s largest most comprehensive and accessible statewide source of assistance for small businesses in every stage of development. The Network consists of two teams – the Arizona Small Business Development Center Network (AZSBDC), which provide tools, training and one-on-one business counseling, and the Arizona APEX Accelerator (formerly AZPTAC), which help businesses seeking federal, state and local contracting opportunities.

The AZSBDC Network delivers a great return on investment. On average, each dollar spent on the AZSBDC and its Arizona small business clients increases sales by $18, accesses $14 in new capital, and creates or retains 6 jobs on every working day!

Our Team is Your Team…and There’s Nothing Small About It!

The AZSBDC Network is an innovative partnership between 10 of the state’s community college districts, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). We are fully accredited by the America’s SBDC, a national system that connects 63 SBDC networks across the United States.

We have the state covered! There are ten SBDC Service Centers located in Casa Grande, Flagstaff, Kingman, Phoenix, Prescott, Show Low, Sierra Vista, Thatcher, Tucson, and Yuma, with additional satellite and meeting locations throughout the state. Additionally, Arizona APEX Accelerator is headquartered in Glendale and has satellite locations in Mesa, Phoenix, Sierra Vista, Tucson, and Yuma.
