NH SBDC Turns 30! Join the Celebration!

The New Hampshire Small Business Development Center celebrates 30 years of helping people turn their dream of opening a business into reality. State Director Mary Collins is our guest blogger today and she joins us at 3 pm next Wednesday (Nov. 19) on our radio show on WTPL-FM 107.7, New Hampshire Business Matters. Happy Anniversary and many more. – Ed.

There’s more to a business than bricks and mortar. Inside every door are people who took their dreams and passion and put them to work. For every single business in New Hampshire, big or small, there’s a story and who doesn’t love a good story?

SBDCThe New Hampshire Small Business Development Center turns 30 this month and we’ve been having a great time telling the stories of some of the thousands of people we’ve met since 1984, helping them to forge their vision, turning it into a business and success.

We’re also throwing a party, and you’re invited, but we’ll get to that in a minute.

NH SBDC is reaching out across the years to connect with clients, partners, staff, advisory board members, supporters and friends with one simple request – we want your face. Email your photos, along with your name, affiliation, and how you are/were connected with us to nh.sbdc@unh.edu or post it to our Facebook page, or tweet it @NHSBDC #nhsbdc30th.

For the past few weeks, we have been featuring these folks on our Facebook and Business Tips pages. All the photos received will become part of the Faces of SBDC slideshow at the upcoming anniversary party.

Set aside 5:30 to 8 pm next Thursday (Nov. 20) at Dyn (150 Dow St., Manchester) for the celebration, which will feature refreshments (including wines, craft beers and mead) and door prizes, many from our past and present clients. We’ll premiere our short film and Gov. Hassan has been invited.

Register here.

We couldn’t turn 30 with our anniversary sponsors: Northeast Utilities – PSNH; Business NH Magazine, TD Bank; UNH Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics; Peter T. Paul, and Peter Paul Wines.  And we also thank our funding partners for 30 years:  U.S. Small Business Administration, the New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development and the University of New Hampshire.
