Welcome to the Small Business Development Center at University of Houston Victoria.

The University of Houston-Victoria Small Business Development Center (UHV SBDC) is committed to fostering small businesses success in the 11 counties we serve. Our center provides no-cost assistance to small business in Aransas, Bee, Calhoun, DeWitt, Goliad, Gonzales, Jackson, Karnes, Lavaca, Refugio and Victoria counties. Our mission for UHV SBDC is to "help the Texas economy grow, one business at a time."

Certified business advisors work confidentially and one on one with business owners, managers and employees. Our center assists small businesses with accounting, finance, marketing, management, loan packaging, training workshops and online training opportunities. The partnerships we develop with area chambers of commerce and economic development centers provide opportunities for our certified business advisors to work in the rural markets of our region.

We are funded in partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration, University of Texas San Antonio, and the University of Houston-Victoria. Whether you are seeking to start a new business, or grow an existing business or transition your business, I encourage you to contact us at the UHV-SBDC and let us be apart of your entrepreneurial success.
