Lieutenant Governor Eric Holcomb has promoted Jane Rich to state director of the Indiana Small Business Development Center. Rich had served as associate state director since 2014.
The ISBDC is a statewide network within the Office of Small Business and Entrepreneurship which offers services to help entrepreneurs and small businesses grow.
"Jane has spent years in Indiana’s small business community, both as an entrepreneur and as a member of the ISBDC team, and I am excited that she has agreed to take on this critical statewide role,” said Holcomb. “We will continue to rely on her extensive professional experience and look forward to the continual strength of the ISBDC under her leadership.”
Rich previously served as business advisor for the Northeast ISBDC and was promoted to regional director in 2010.
"I am honored and excited to serve as the ISBDC State Director," said Rich. "Indiana’s Small Business Development Center network is focused on expanding business opportunities for the state’s entrepreneurs. We are in an excellent position to continue to make Indiana an optimal place for entrepreneurship and innovation."
