UCEDC provides loans, training, and government contracting services for small businesses throughout the state of New Jersey.

Starting in March, on the third Tuesday of each month, UCEDC will be on-site at the CoLab to provide free workshops and 1:1 business advising to CoLab clients.

March 17, 2015: Marketing Made Real

Marketing is essential for small business success, yet many owners don’t understand how to effectively market their business or even what “Marketing” really means.
