Small Business Development
Seguin's small businesses are a critical component and major contributor to the strength of our local economy for numerous reasons. Seguin's small businesses are a prominent source of driving growth and innovation into our community. They support local events, the business community, teams/organizations and make up the heart of Seguin's community.
Starting and operating a small business is a big decision with a lot of risk. However, the SEDC is standing by to make that leap a little less daunting.
