SBDC Workshops Help Entrepreneurs Energetically Build their Businesses Efficiently
The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at SUNY Canton is offering a new program for entrepreneurs who want to save money and expand their brick-and-mortar businesses.
The SBDC has partnered with the agencies Renew St. Lawrence County and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to link business owners with the best resources to build new or renovate existing businesses.
The agencies will be presenting two free workshops at:
- 9 a.m. Monday, June 18, at the Potsdam Civic Center; and
- 4 p.m. Monday, June 18, at Ogdensburg’s Dobisky Center.
“NYSERDA provides free energy audits for existing businesses to help existing businesses plan energy efficient renovations,” said SBDC Director Dale A. Rice. “They will be able to provide free information and recommendations about energy efficient heating and lighting solutions. Business owners may also be eligible for economic incentives to renovate or build new brick-and-mortar businesses or storefronts.”
A NYSERDA Outreach Specialist will be presenting the workshops as a means to help business owners gain access to funding available from a wide range of state resources. The SUNY Canton Small Business Development Center is available to assist business owners with all of the necessary steps and assessing the cost-benefit of implementing new energy efficiency measures.
For more information, or to secure a seat at either of the two free workshops, please contact the SBDC Office at SUNY Canton, 315-386-7312, firstname.lastname@example.org.
