Illinois Valley Business Entrepreneurial Center (IVBEC)
The RCC SBDC collaborates with the Illinois Valley Business Entrepreneurial Center to provide an effective outreach of our core services to rural regions of Josephine County. We have significant experience with helping both existing and prospective business owners understand the challenges of operating within micro-economies and how they can overcome logistical and infrastructure challenges that are unique to rural areas. Our advisors have experience supporting these niche industries:
- Art Community
- Value added agriculture
- Craft community
- Tourism and ecotourism
- Boutique manufacturing
The IVBEC is housed at our facility in Kerby, but accommodations are made to ensure we are responsive to any business owner in rural Josephine County. For more information, please call 541-956-7494.
