Welcome to Arkansas State University!

A-State Small Business & Technology Development Center

The Arkansas State University Small Business and Technology Development Center was established in 1983 to provide professional assistance to start-up and existing businesses in Northeast and North-Central Arkansas.

Empowering Small Businesses 

Located in the College of Business, the A-State SBTDC provides training to small business owners and entrepreneurs on a variety of topics from start-up requirements to tax issues, marketing, loan assistance, and Internet as well as E-Commerce opportunities. Additionally, the SBTDC provides research and industry information to help small businesses obtain the necessary information to develop strong business and marketing plans. Finally, the SBTDC provides a variety of free confidential one-on-one business consulting. 

We are funded in part by the US Small Business Administration and the Arkansas State University College of Business. This unit coordinates the economic development outreach services of the university and provides a coordinated and comprehensive approach to serving the businesses, governments, and citizens of the Arkansas Delta.
