From local sources
Radius Indiana and Vincennes University today announced the commitment of an Indiana Small Business Development office dedicated to the eight-county Radius Indiana region. The office will be located in and provided by the City of Huntingburg, according to Huntingburg Mayor Denny Spinner.
The office will be located in Old Town Hall after the Dubois Strong organization completes its relocation to VU Jasper Campus. Dubois Strong Interim Director Mike Cummings said this morning that the move could be completed as early as mid-May.
Ken Sendelweck, Radius Indiana’s board chairman, said the new partnership of Radius Indiana, the Indiana Small Business Development Center and VU recognizes “the critical need to provide resources for our region’s economic development and growth by creating an environment for entrepreneurial incubation and job creation.”
Vicki Hollanders of the ISBDC has served each of the eight counties in the Radius Indiana region — Dubois, Crawford, Daviess, Greene, Lawrence, Martin, Orange and Washington —since 2010, working mobiley while utilizing Radius offices in Bedford, Jasper and French Lick. Hollanders is also an adviser on the Radius Indiana board.
Commenting on the financial sponsorship committed by the university, VU President Dick Helton said, “Vincennes University is dedicated to serving as an important link in Indiana’s economic vitality.
Partnering with Radius Indiana to support the SBDC in providing the tools, training and guidance entrepreneurs need for success fits strongly in line with the vision of the university.”
The Indiana Small Business Development Center provides guidance as well as tools and resources to entrepreneurs, including business planning, market research, specialty programs and training to assist in the formation, growth and sustainability of Indiana’s small businesses.
According to Jacob Schpok, state director of the Indiana Small Business Development Center, small businesses employ 90 percent of the workforce.
