"Our focus is to have the community see the SBDC as a business fitness center and not a business hospital. It's not where you go if you're a struggling business trying to fix your problems. It's a place to go for expert advice on how to grow your business. Some of the individual offices will have different areas of focus. Woodland is focused on agriculture and international ag trade. Davis and Folsom are interested in serving high-tech companies. Elk Grove is interested in health care."

- Scott Leslie, Metro Chamber of Commerce, SBDC Director
