Philbert the Pig at Reading Terminal Market

Last month, Temple SBDC joined in the nationwide celebration of SBDC Day! We visited some of our partners across Philadelphia, Eastern Montgomery, and Lower Bucks counties to remind them of our services and introduce them to our new decentralized work plan!

The pandemic has proven how important it is to be flexible, and we’re taking that to heart. For nearly 40 years, we’ve worked hard to meet entrepreneurs at all points along their small business journey, providing the skills and knowledge they need for success. Now the SBDC team will meet entrepreneurs where they’re at geographically, by working at partner locations all over our footprint!

We recognize that traveling across the city can be hard for small business owners who are already trying to do too much. Now you can meet with your small business consultant at partner locations across Philadelphia, Montgomery, and Bucks counties and continue to receive the business expertise you’ve come to rely on. And because we know you’re busy, we’re here to help you in the evenings and on the weekends, too!

COVID-19 has changed the way everyone works and the SBDC is no exception. We’ve made some moves but we’re not saying goodbye to Temple! We have a new space in the heart of main campus at 1810 Liacouras Walk and a beautiful new office on the 5th floor of Temple University Center City (TUCC) at 1515 Market Street. We also still have our space at Temple Ambler in Montgomery County. We no longer have offices at 1510 Cecil B. Moore Avenue.

Like to keep it online? No problem! Our consultants will still be offering no-cost advising and business services virtually on Zoom or by phone. Just schedule a virtual meeting with our consultants!

We can’t wait to see you in your neck of the woods! We’ll keep you posted on which partner locations we’ll be at. Follow us on social media and sign up for our mailing list to receive convenient updates on the partner locations we’ll be at.
