For Immediate Release: January 25, 2019

For More Information: Jenny Baertsch, Marketing Manager 507-454-9248

WNB Financial is pleased to support the Southeast Minnesota Small Business Development Center (SBDC) with a $1,000 donation, helping to provide free services to small business throughout the region. “I refer many clients and potential clients to our local SBDC representative, Mark Thein,” Chris Callahan, WNB Financial Vice President and Business Banking Officer, said. “Mark does a great job helping entrepreneurs with business planning and organizing, and he provides the information needed as we explore lending options. The cooperation between SBDC and WNB is a vital link in the chain as ideas develop and the businesses become successful in our community.” Small businesses are critical for growing a strong and prosperous economy. Not only do they create jobs, but they also give back to communities by increasing the tax base, creating locally produced goods, and enhancing the region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. Free services offered by the SBDC include:

  • Business planning and training.
  • Assistance in accessing capital, including both commercial and Small Business Association (SBA) debt financing.
  • Business management assistance, including financial analysis, sales, marketing, and operations.
For more information, please contact the WNB Financial Business Banking Team at 507-454-8800 or stop by the WNB West Office at 1491 W. Broadway in Winona. ###
