According to a recent announcement, those interested in starting their own small business in Northern California will soon have a brand-new place to get information, in the latest news for small business.
The Times-Standard reports that Humboldt State University, which is part of the California State University system, signed a new agreement with the California Small Business Development Center Network. The expanded role will give entrepreneurs information on how they can obtain loans and grants from the state. The program is also designed to increase the amount of internship opportunities and career options.
”We are very excited to have an opportunity to build on our long-standing, symbiotic relationships within the CSU,” said Humboldt State's Kristin Johnson, chair of the California SBDC and regional director of the Northern California SBDC Lead Center. “CSU campuses are hotbeds of innovation and vibrancy which allow our centers easy access to research and talent.”
Californians could use the help. According to the latest numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 12.2 percent of the population is unemployed.
