The Elko Small Business Development Center (SBDC) serves Elko and White Pine Counties, including Elko, Spring Creek, Wells, Wendover, Jackpot, Carlin, Ely, McGill and all the other rural towns in between! Our consulting services in White Pine County are partially funded by the Rural Nevada Development Corporation. We prepare, present and organize over 15 training seminars per year.

The Elko SBDC is designed to meet the many specialized needs for small business managers and owners. The SBDC is a cooperative effort between the University of Nevada, Reno, Great Basin College, and the U.S. Small Business Administration.

The center:

  • provides one-on-one individual advising to any small business located in northeastern Nevada.
  • develops and offers educational programs geared to the needs and interests of small business persons in pre-business training, small business management, and specialized skills training.
  • provides a variety of management and technical assistance services such as business plan development, new business analysis, loan packaging, marketing, financing, and record keeping.

There is no charge for the management and technical assistance provided by the SBDC.

Any small business firm or individual may request assistance from the SBDC and take advantage of advising services, education, and technical resources. For more information, please call the SBDC at (800) 240-7094 or e-mail us.
