Over 80% of younger, smaller firms rely on personal savings or funds from friends or family to fund their business.* This means that only 20% of small, younger firms have access to outside capital sources.
The UGA Small Business Development Center has a team of business advisors who serve as small and micro business finance specialists. This team is tasked with working with market segments that often lack access to capital or have difficulty accessing traditional lending.
Our business advisors are available to assist businesses through advisory services and educational training programs.
UGA SBDC Business Advisors provide advisory services in the areas of accounting, financial management, capital (loan) acquisition, financial projections creation and the administrative tasks associated with starting a business.
