Starting and Running a Small Business in St. Johns County Just Got Easier

Thanks to the financial support of the St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners, the SBDC at UNF now has a full time office in St. Johns County. Marge Cirillo, St. Johns County’s very own SBDC Certified Business Analyst, has an office in the County’s Growth Management Building, also known as the “Permit Center”. SBDC receives federal funds from the SBA that must be matched by local sources. St. Johns County BCC 2009/10 budget includes $40,000 for the SBDC office, which is matched dollar for dollar (or more) by federal and state funding.

St. Johns County Commissioner Ken Bryan spearheaded the effort to put the SBDC into the budget. And his fellow commissioners fully supported the cause, proving that they recognize the impact small businesses have on the economy.

Marge has already started meeting one-on-one with St. Johns County’s prospective and existing business owners. Make an appointment by calling (800) 450-4624.
