El Paso

The mission of the El Paso SBDC, member center of the South-West Texas Border SBDC Network of the University of Texas at San Antonio, is to promote growth, expansion, innovation, increased productivity, and improved management for small businesses. The mission is accomplished through activities of counseling, technical assistance, training seminars, and research services.

Impact of SBDC Counseling on the South-West Texas Border Region Economy

Impact assistance returns tax revenues to state and federal governments, and value and capital to its clients that are greater than the direct cost of providing the services, making the existence of the SBDC program justifiable from a public policy perspective. For every $1.00 invested in the South-West Texas Border SBDC, a return of $6.24 is generated. (Findings from an independent study by Dr. James Chrisman, Mississippi State University.)
