“In this tough economic environment, it’s more important than ever that entrepreneurs are equipped with an understanding of cash flow management and other key business skills, which is why LBMC is happy to partner with TSBDC in delivering the SMLS Series,” Jim Callihan, LBMC partner, said in a prepared statement.
Other partners are the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Small Business Administration, both of which provide funding for TSBDC. In addition, TSBDC is an entity of Chattanooga State Community College.
