U.S. Bank Backs Small Businesses In San Diego By Sponsoring Small Business Development Center Online Training

U.S. Bank, fifth-largest bank in the United States and advisor to small businesses nationwide, has stepped up to support small businesses in North San Diego County by sponsoring the North San Diego Small Business Development Center online workshops. The North San Diego SBDC serves businesses in San Diego County north of Interstate 8.

The online workshops are free to small business owners and cover a number of topics including financial planning, creating a business plan, business management, technology development, marketing, regulatory compliance and international trade. These interactive multimedia workshops provide in-depth strategies, tools, processes and solutions that can help business owners grow and manage their business. U.S. Bank small business experts will also be available to advise small businesses owners one-on-one during workshops or seminars.

“Small business owners who are looking for a loan or line of credit want as much information as they can find before they take that next step,” said Hector Zatarain, senior vice president and head of small business at U.S. Bank in San Diego. “The local SBDC is a natural place to turn for information and resources, and given the constraints of public financing, we’re pleased to be able to step in and fill the gap.”
