The Illinois Small Business Development Center (Illinois SBDC) at Elgin Community College offers counseling services at no cost to help small businesses succeed. Entrepreneurs and small business owners can obtain advice in management, marketing, finance, and operations. We offer tailored, one-on-one advising and workshops to assist with business development.

Our training and advising are available for new and existing businesses. Our grant funding requires that you register your business with us. We’ll help you build a comprehensive business assessment to identify critical areas needing attention and provide a follow-up action plan to address them.
