What We Do

The Nevada Small Business Development Center provides free, confidential consulting, free workshops, and low cost training to smart entrepreneurs who understand the importance of a good plan and sage advice.

The Center also provides custom market analyses through our Geographic Information Services (GIS) department designed to help a business select a location for operations, understand current market trends, and predict where the local economy is headed.

We provide primary and secondary research information through our Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER) program needed to make important business decisions.

Our State Demographer provides annual population estimates and projections to assist businesses and governmental agencies in effective planning.

Free and confidential environmental and energy efficiency assistance can also be accessed through our Business Environmental Program (BEP) to assist with compliance and waste reduction issues.

The people at the NSBDC are oriented towards making the business work. It’s nice to work with people who really care about you. – Steve McCrosky, McCrosky’s “Y” Service, Panaca, Nevada
