George Mason University's Enterprise Center in Leesburg takes over the Loudoun Small Business Development Center after June.
The Mason Enterprise Center began the transition immediately after the takeover was announced in a news release April 20.
The Development Center continues its counseling and seminars for small businesses new and old in the area until June 30, when the transfer of responsibilities and operations officially takes place.
The decision was made after the Development Center Board of Directors received a mandate from the Virginia Small Business to focus on high growth companies and make a “change in strategic direction, ” the release said.
“It is with a heavy heart that I and my fellow Loudoun SBDC Board members made the decision to transfer responsibility for growing and supporting Loudoun’s emerging small businesses and entrepreneurs to the Leesburg Mason Enterprise Center, ” said Loudoun SBDC board president, Mike Mattenson of PNC Bank in the statement. “ … With a mandated change in strategic direction supported by our major funding partners and our limited resources, our Board had little choice but to support the transition to the Mason Enterprise Center.”
The local chapter of the Small Business Development Center began around 28 years ago.
“In this ever-changing and dynamic global economic environment, we support the Virginia SBDC’s strategic direction and are fully confident that the Mason Enterprise Center will continue the Loudoun SBDC’s legacy as the finest Small Business Development Center in the Commonwealth, ” said Loudoun County’s Director of Economic Development, Buddy Rizer, in the statement.
