The Small Business Development Center hosted by MiraCosta College Celebrating 20 Years of Making the American Dream Come True for Thousands of Small Business Owners
Over the past twenty years thousands of local entrepreneurs and business owners have visited The North San Diego Small Business Development Center (SBDC) to help them start, manage and grow their businesses. I was one of those entrepreneurs and the information and support I received was priceless. I am now celebrating a decade in business. The SBDC consultants have been with me and thousands of small business owners every step of the way. There is no cost to entrepreneurs and small business owners for private one-on-one business advising and most of the training and resources available to them.

From initiatives that aim to save Oceanside beach sand to the thriving farm-to-table scene, there is always a new topic to learn about in our growing city. Over the past year, the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce has launched a program called the Oceanside Young Professionals Network (OYPN). The OYPN is designed to connect young professionals with each other through fun networking and event opportunities and also connect them to the issues that affect us most, professionally and personally.
In recent months, the Oceanside Chamber has had the honor of partnering with numerous community organizations in support of the Oceanside Promise’s Latino Young Men Success Initiative Pilot Program.
LAMVIN, Inc. is a manufacturer of custom architectural acoustical products here in Oceanside, California. Opened in 1961, the company’s name was derived from Laminating Vinyl. Under new ownership in the 1980s, acoustical products became their primary focus. (If you’ve ever eaten in a noisy restaurant or café, you can most often attribute the noise level to a lack of “acoustic absorption”. Acoustic absorption reduces sound and echoes by adding soft materials to hard surfaces.)
