Each Small Business Development Center serves a particular geographic area and specializes in the processes specific to that jurisdiction. The Alexandria SBDC offers one-on-one counseling to City of Alexandria small businesses. The Map of Service Areas to the right shows the boundaries for the City.
Businesses located in Arlington or in western Fairfax County (McLean, Reston, Herndon, Centreville, etc.) should contact the Mason Enterprise Center. Businesses located in eastern Fairfax County (Springfield, Annandale, Falls Church, Alexandria addresses not in the City of Alexandria, etc.) should contact the Community Business Partnership. For other areas, please visit the Virginia State SBDC website, the Maryland State SBDC website, or the Washington, DC SBDC website to determine which SBDC serves your area.
Counseling is by appointment only. We regret that we cannot accommodate walk-ins.
