To accelerate Ohio's economy by helping people start, sustain and grow their businesses.
The Small Business Development Center within the Monte Ahuja College of Business at Cleveland State University is the first SBDC in the nation to have a partnership and be located within a public library. Hosted at the Cleveland Heights Public Library (Link to a map here) when you visit you will find an innovative, collaborative, convenient space with on-site business advisors ready to help you start, sustain or grow your business.
