Shoals Chamber Offers New Business Resource Center

The Shoals Chamber of Commerce is proud to collaborate with the Alabama Small Business Development Center (SBDC) to offer a Business Resource Center onsite at the Shoals Chamber office, 20 Hightower Place in Florence.
The Alabama SBDC Network exists to train business people in a wide variety of business topics and provides comprehensive information services and access to experts in many fields. Although the Alabama SBDC has nine office state wide, SBDC Business Advisor / Finance Specialist Heather Wright will be on hand February 1 and the following first Friday of each month to offer business advice to Shoals area businesses.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with the Small Business Development Center,” said Shoals Chamber President Caitlin Holland. “This entity shares many of the same goals as the Shoals Chamber in that its focus is the success of local small businesses. We want to see businesses, new and established, equipped with the tools that they need to succeed for years to come.”

The Alabama SBDC Network offers assistance with interested parties starting a business; growing an existing business; financing; government procurement; exporting and importing; and other initiatives of business owners. “The best part of this partnership with the Shoals Chamber is that it is a no-cost resource for small businesses,” added Wright. “We look forward to a great year assisting in the growth of the Shoals economy.”
