The Small Business Development Center at Gannon University has helped northwestern Pennsylvania's most successful businesses set that pace for over thirty years. The Gannon SBDC is one of 18 Small Business Development Centers in Pennsylvania and is an accredited affiliate of the national network of Small Business Development Centers.

Our team professional consultants works confidentially with entrepreneurs in Erie, Crawford, Mercer, and Warren counties to help their businesses maintain a competitive edge.

We can do the same for your business by helping you set goals, develop new products and services, gather sophisticated information about your industry, or find new global markets.

Even better, we offer many of these services at absolutely no charge. All we ask is that you bring an open mind and a desire to gain the extra edge that will separate your business from the rest.

Helping you start, grow, and prosper
Whether you are looking to start a business, solve a problem facing your current business, or launch a new product, you need the help of a professional expert.
