Partners

OKSBDC takes great pride in the network of partners we work with everyday and that are available to small businesses in the State of Oklahoma.  OKSBDC works diligently to see clients receive access to the programs and services that provide the tools and resources most appropriate for their needs.

Small Business Administration

The SBA is an independent agency of the federal government that provides small businesses with information, counseling, and assistance. Through their website, visitors can access numerous guides and online courses on several topics. For small businesses seeking loans to get started or expand, the SBA offers different loan programs to assist in acquiring such funding from various institutions, private and otherwise. The SBA is able to provide these services through their extensive network and partnership with public and private organizations across the country. The OSBDC is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
