The New Jersey Small Business Development Centers (NJSBDC) statewide network has partnered with Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) to become the full-time host for the NJSBDC of Northwest Jersey servicing Morris, Sussex, and Warren counties. The center, currently housed in The Station in Chatham, will now be known as the NJSBDC at Fairleigh Dickinson University and will be part of FDU’s Silberman College of Business, which also touts the Rothman Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Fairleigh Dickinson University to the NJSBDC family.” Says NJSBDC CEO and State Director Kelly Brozyna. “Fairleigh Dickinson has been very active in entrepreneurship for quite some time, so we know that this partnership is a perfect pairing to help the small and mid-sized businesses of Morris, Sussex, Warren counties.”
The NJSBDC at Fairleigh Dickinson University will continue to provide support, training, consulting, technical assistance, and connection to resources for entrepreneurs and small to mid-sized business owners at any stage of their journey from ideation to structure for acquisition or merger activities.
“I am thrilled to have Silberman College of Business partner with the NJSBDC.” Says Pierre Balthazard, dean and professor of the Silberman College of Business. “The combination of NJSBDC’s high-quality team, the competencies of our Rothman Institute, and the increased involvement of our students and faculty, I see FDU enhancing its support for small businesses and entrepreneurial endeavors across the state, and assuming an important economic development role in the communities we serve.”
