Decatur Businesses Working to Succeed Together
DECATUR, Ill. (WRSP) —
Instead of businesses competing against each other, there's a new resource out of Decatur that aims to bring central Illinois companies together.
Wednesday, the Illinois Small Business Development Center (SBDC) announced how it will give professional advising on international trade and exporting.
The goal is to help companies succeed as a team instead of individually.
“So if we can build the overall economy, then we can build all the communities. Instead of fighting over pieces of the pie, growing the pie larger by sharing assets and unique capabilities of each of the communities," EDC President Ryan McCrady said.
The new resources are provided at no cost to the business owner.
Those signed up, will have regularly scheduled sessions at the Decatur office.
SBDC also offers advising workshops for new businesses.
