With the United States Federal Main Street Employee Ownership Act passage in August 2018, SBDC offices and advisors in NY State and across the country started taking action to implement the unfunded mandate of providing educational and technical assistance for employee-ownership.

One example is the Adirondack North Country Association’s (Saranac Lake, New York) Center for Business in Transition (The Center is a unique collaboration of regional organizations and leaders whose shared goal is to support existing business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs in developing successful business transition strategies), which is a program department within a regional non-profit economic development agency, in which the SBDC is a Community Liaison Lead Partner for succession planning outreach and assistance. This example recently resulted in the awarding of $250,000 from NY Empire State Development for the transition of a family-owned lumber company to a worker cooperative.
