Committed to the small business community


We at the Ohio SBDC at Lakeland Community College are committed to our small business community.

Please note, we are currently working a combination of both remotely from home and in the office, and we are available and happy to assist local small business owners via online, telephone or video conferencing. If you require business assistance, please register through our business counseling link and someone will contact you. You can also email Angela Cattell at for further assistance.
