Frederick, MD (PRWEB) November 10, 2013
The Maryland Small Business Technology Development Center (SBTDC) Frederick branch office has recently opened a second satellite office within the Frederick Innovative Technology Center incubator. Better known as FITCI, the incubator is located at 4539 Metropolitan Court, Frederick MD. Effective immediately SBTDC Counselor Beth A Woodring will have regular office hours 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. at FITCI each Thursday.
“The Small Business Technology Development Center is a tremendous resource for local small business owners and entrepreneurs,” explained Helen Propheter, Manager for Frederick County Business Development and Retention, which helps sponsor the SBTDC locally. “While the SBTDC serves the entire county area within Frederick from an office inside Winchester Hall, having a satellite office located inside the FITCI incubator makes sense. The SBTDC counselor has been working regularly with our incubator companies so locating on site enhances the total services delivery” stated Propheter.
The MDSBTDC provides existing and startup businesses with technical assistance, guidance and resources designed to improve their competitive standing in the marketplace. It also provides virtual and classroom based training and workshops and each year delivers thousands of hours in confidential, one-on-one consulting sessions resulting in economic improvements in the local community at no cost to the client.
