Our Impact

Our Impact
Building The Texas Economy One Business At A Time

The South-West Texas Border SBDC Network continues to perform at the top of our SBDC peer group nationally and this year earned full accreditation by America’s SBDC. As an element of the Baldrige-based quality review, I am proud to report that we received a special “T” designation for successful integration of our SBDC Technology Commercialization program into our network business model. The feature article on page six of this report describes some of the exciting new market access points the program facilitated for these innovative, STEM-based clients.

The resourcefulness and dedication of our leadership, advising, training, and administrative team members resulted in not only meeting, but exceeding the expectations of our funding partners. Our clients have provided written attribution to support the impressive impact we are proud to report, and some of these “faces of success” are illustrated with photos and stories of their entrepreneurial journeys.

It is our hope that you, as an important stakeholder in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, continue your support of our SBDC efforts to “Build the Economy One Business at a Time”.
