For the purposes of this site we, the Wyoming SBDC Network, define a small business as one with fifty or fewer full or part-time employees or an annual gross income of less than $4M computed as the average of the three preceding years. Year one (through January 2022) of the ShopWyoming.com marketplace is offered by the Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) with funds provided from the Small Business Administration (SBA) as a result of appropriations from the U.S. Congress to assist businesses in recovering from the negative effects of COVID-19. After January 2022, if a new funding source cannot be identified to underwrite the costs of the marketplace, individual subscription fees starting at $25/month may be available. There is no obligation to commit to a monthly plan in year two.
