    National Small Business Week

    More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. That comes out to be approximately 28 million small businesses that propel our economy forward and define our national entrepreneurial spirit. And this is why we want to remind individuals about the North Platte NBDC office and its services they offer for free.
    The Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) is pleased to announce that North Platte Center Director, Charlie McPherson continues to work alongside small business owners and area entrepreneurs to assist them with their needs in North Platte, NE.  He is excited and pleased to continue to be partnering with Mid-Plains Community College and the North Platte Chamber and Development office in order to provide face to face services for North Platte and the surrounding areas. Please contact him at (308) 535-3661 or email at mcphersonc@mpcc.edu to schedule appointments.
    Since taking over in late 2013, NBDC’s North Platte office has provided assistance to more than 85 clients.  These clients were assisted with business plans, financial projections, general business consulting, and loan packaging.  They were approved for more than $8.2 million in total investments, which created more than 70 jobs.
    NBDC’s general services are provided at no cost.  NBDC is a cooperative program of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the College of Business Administration of the University of Nebraska at Omaha and Mid-Plains Community College.  Through the Small Business Development Center program, NBDC provides direct management and technical assistance to more than 2,000 businesses in Nebraska each year.  NBDC operates centers throughout the state in Omaha, Lincoln, Wayne, Norfolk, Kearney, North Platte, Chadron, and Scottsbluff.
