USCB Small Business Development Center

Let Us Help You Succeed in Business

South Carolina Small Business Development Center (SC SBDC) consultants on USCB's Hilton Head Island and historic Beaufort campuses work in partnership with University of South Carolina Beaufort to help the local economy thrive.

The SC SBDC is part of a statewide business outreach organization that helps entrepreneurs expand an existing business or start a new enterprise.  Learn more at: SC Small Business Development Center.


We work with companies in all stages of development – from a person with an idea for an innovative product but no idea how to move forward to the owner of a company looking to capture new markets.  We specialize in assisting with loan paperwork for small business loans.
