Supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the California Office of the Small Business Advocate (CALOSBA), the San Mateo Small Business Development Center, hosted by Renaissance, is a key resource for small businesses in San Mateo County.

San Mateo SBDC delivers hands-on business training, tailored one-on-one counseling, and group workshops, all designed to foster business startup, growth, and sustainability. Our primary mission is to uplift San Mateo County’s entrepreneurial spirit. Furthermore, we’re a proud member of the Northern California Small Business Development Network, led by Cal Poly Humboldt.

We’re here to equip small businesses with the right tools, insights, and strategies. Whether you need help drafting a business plan, accessing financing, or navigating market challenges, we’re by your side. Our doors are open to entrepreneurs from all walks of life, celebrating the diversity and potential of our local business community. For more about the San Mateo SBDC, click here.
