Planning and Economic Development

Small Business Development Center

Small business is important to us; it is the foundation of our local economy. We work in close partnership with the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) to make sure small businesses and entrepreneurs in Macomb County receive the assistance they need.  

The SBDC in Macomb County is based at our office in Mt. Clemens and is operated by Eastern Michigan University in partnership with our department. They also offer office hours at the Eastpointe City Hall on select Wednesdays. All confidential, one-on-one business consultation is available by appointment only.

Counselors at the SBDC can offer assistance with business plan development, raising capital, export strategy, financial management and technology commercialization. Through business workshops, they offer a wide range of learning opportunities in both classroom and webinar settings.  

For more information about the SBDC, to register for a workshop, or to request an appointment with the business counselor, visit their website at
