SANTA CLARITA — The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at College of the Canyons has joined forces with California Lutheran University (CLU), the firm Homeier & Law, P.C., and the Maverick Angels investment network to establish a program to bring a wide range of new services and resources to small business owners and entrepreneurs throughout the San Fernando, East Ventura and Santa Clarita Valleys.

“We are very pleased to help found this unique program,” said SBDC Executive Director Steve Tannehill. “Our role in helping to establish the Center and its Institute program represents the next logical phase of expanded services available to SBDC clients.

The Center anticipates choosing up to 20 applicants to participate in the first Institute cohort, which is scheduled to begin in early January.

Participants will be chosen through a competitive selection process, with all applicants asked to complete an on-line application and commit to completing the entire six-week program.
