Center for Small Business

Founded in 1969, the Center for Small Businesses (CSB) is one of the oldest and largest of its kind in the United States. For more than forty-five years, the CSB has served in excess of 2,000 small businesses in the Greater Sacramento area.

The CSB offers free technical management assistance in all areas of business other than taxation, law, and loan packaging, to small for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. The services are provided by juniors, seniors, and graduate students under faculty supervision. These students are assigned to work with clients of the CSB as part of their coursework in various classes offered by the College of Business Administration.

Services are provided compliments of Sacramento State and many of the financial institutions of the local area.

We have completed matching for Fall 2019 and are currently accepting applications for Spring 2020.
