Nearly 100 people filled the Studio D business hub on the top floor of the Chase Building in the early evening of Nov. 2 to officially mark the grand opening of the Entrepreneurial Resource Center (ERC), a partnership between the city of San Bernardino and Cal State San Bernardino’s Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship (IECE). The ERC is designed to be an easily accessible hub for small business services, centrally located in downtown San Bernardino at Studio D, 330 N. D Street.

“This is a community resource,” said Mike Stull, a professor of entrepreneurship and director of the IECE and the CSUSB School of Entrepreneurship. “We’re, for lack of a better term, we’re an anchor. But we are baked into the project as we’re bringing in other community organizations to be our affiliate partners, to bring in resources and services that either we don’t always provide, or that they’re filling a niche, or they have great relationships in the community that can be leveraged and grown so that we can impact more small businesses. So it’s not just us, it’s a team effort.”
