Fall 2012 Small Business Owner Highlight
Thanks to Small Business Development Center support, owners, Megan and Tim Stevens, have the confidence to “orchestrate the risks and enjoy the adventure,” of being local business owners. They grew their business from one store to three while in the SBM program.
Small Business Development Centers are partially funded by the US Small

Business Development Department. Lane SBDC’s workshops, classes and advising/coaching
services are partially funded by this support. Primary funding for the Lane
SBDC is provided by Lane Community College.
