The Longwood Small Business Development Center is a non-profit organization that offers our services at no charge to clients.

We’re funded through Longwood University, the U.S. Small Business Administration, and local county and city governments where the Longwood SBDC maintains office locations.

The Longwood SBDC is a partnership program with the U.S. Small Business Administration that provides assistance and training to help small business owners and potential owners make sound decisions for the successful operation of their business.

We offer individual, one-on-one, confidential counseling, and also sponsor workshops, conferences and courses at various locations in our service area.

Part of the Virginia Small Business Development Centers statewide network, we serve 20 counties and 6 independent cities in South-Central Virginia.

Longwood operates five SBDC office locations throughout Southside Virginia: Farmville, South Boston, Martinsville, Petersburg, and Danville. Click on the office locations to learn which location services your geographic area.
