What is the Maximum Series?

The SBDC Maximum Series provides small business owners with the tools and resources they need to develop business strategy and improve performance. The series is a community based learning environment with fast-paced sessions that include outside speakers, interactive exercises and group activities.

By design, the SBDC Maximum Series helps to strengthen relationships with resource partners and participants in the hosting community. Attendees have the opportunity to engage in voluntary, private counseling sessions with an SBDC consultant to discuss participants’ specific business issues and challenges.

The SBDC Maximum Series is offered by request. If your community is looking to grow their businesses and expand their knowledge, contact one of our 17 SBDC office across the state of Georgia for more information.
