The IL SBDC at Waubonsee Community College provided funding through a grant from the SBA Small Business Jobs Act. The grant provided $100,000 to support local entrepreneurs and partner with FVEC to develop a business framework for ongoing support from the private sector.

So far, through this grant the SBDC and FVEC have helped:

  • Over 60 companies
  • Raise over $2.5 million in debt and equity financing
  • Create 150 new jobs and hundreds more retained
