The Rhode Island Small Business Development Center (RISBDC) at the University of Rhode Island provides local small business owners with the services and expertise they need to succeed – no-cost expert counseling, relevant training and access to important resources. Our experienced business counselors are available to support you and your business at every stage, from start-up through maturity.
Funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration. SBDCs are a program supported by SBA and extended to the public on a non-discriminatory basis. SBA cannot endorse any products, opinions, or services of any external parties or activities. By contacting our office and requesting at least two weeks in advance, every attempt will be made to reasonably accommodate persons with disabilities and those who need translation services. Please contact Susan Snyder in our lead center at 401-874-7232 to make such arrangements.
