About Us


The Lamar State College-Port Arthur Small Business Development Center (LSCPA SBDC) provides business consulting and training to entrepreneurs and small businesses.  Our professional consultants can meet with your start-up or growing business to evaluate financing alternatives, develop loan packages, review and update business plans and strategies and access financial checkups and recommendations. Through our Network office, the LSCPA SBDC can also help you evaluate new market opportunities selling to federal, state, and local governments and to customers outside the United States.

Business owners and their employees can attend training in both Port Arthur and Nederland to learn and expand their knowledge of critical business tools and technology skills at workshops led by experienced entrepreneurs.
