We, Austin Tenant Advisors, attended a luncheon last week that was hosted by the Austin Small Business Development Program (SBDP)and Austin Independent Business Alliance that gave us the scoop on tons of FREE resources for YOU–the business owner.
If you’ve been wanting to start a new business and are looking for Austin office space, retail space or warehouse space, the Austin Small Business Development Program is the RIGHT place for you to go. They’ve got all of the resources you’ll need to get headed in the right direction.
Here’s what they say they do:
SBDP stands for Small Business Development Program. We provide counseling and assistance to small businesses. Our focus, as our name implies, is to develop and empower small businesses in order to strengthen their business capability and survivability.

They’ll also help you along in a process that they call the Small Business Development Process which includes:
