Wrapping up 2022: As 2023 approaches and we settle in for the holidays, I wanted to take a moment and reflect on 2022. We entered the year still being mindful of the pandemic; however, our clients stayed resilient and focused on renewed growth. We are so proud of our business community.
The SBDC team and staff welcomed 128 new clients and supported 394 total clients this year. The 5th Annual Angel Con was held live and in person with $205,000 awarded to AcreCloud and NovoCuff — the largest amount to date. We settled back into our office downtown and launched new offices in North and South County, with our consulting bench growing to over 35 industry experts. It has been a year of challenges with inflation and looming recession, but also a year of economic prosperity in our region, with a total of $20M of investments being made to local startups.
I am grateful for our clients, the central coast business community at large and the incredible SBDC team. I hope you find time to celebrate the holidays and welcome the New Year with friends and family.
