Small Business Help


Welcome to the Small Business Development Center

Appointments: 281-485-5214

Do you have a great business idea that you'd like to get off the ground, but you're not sure where to start? Or perhaps you already have a small business and you want to take it to the next level. The SBDC can help you get there.

We offer free, private counseling and low-cost workshops that help entrepreneurs start new businesses, grow their existing businesses, and boost productivity and profitability. We can give you guidance on every facet of your business, including applying for loans, writing business plans, creating marketing strategies, developing budgets and much more.

Our counselors have owned and managed their own businesses and have an entrepreneurial mindset, and know from experience how to help you succeed. Best of all, most of our services are free. Just call 281-485-5214 to make an appointment. Before your appointment, please fill out our Request For Counseling. It will give us the information we need, so we can give you the help you need. Additional information about the SBDC, including the Request For Counseling, can be found at and the completed form can be emailed to Tabitha Godinez, Senior Administrative Assistant, at
