Start a Business
A pre-business workshop will help you to explore the possibilities and help you to decide whether to embark on this new venture. These workshops provide the foundation for developing a sound business plan to start your business and guide its growth. Our business advisors can help you refine your plan and access the information you need.
Grow Your Business
Our seasoned advisors can analyze your business and help you develop tools for growth; a business plan, financial analysis, and a marketing strategy that’s right on target. We can also assist you with identifying sources of financing and develop a financing proposal, as well as provide seminars to help you stay current and strengthen your skills.
Seminars and Training
The programs offered by the SBDCs include startup, loan, planning, taxes, marketing and financial statement workshops. The specialty centers provide seminars conducted by expert facilitators, on such topics as writing bid proposals, acquiring a patent or trademark, designing a Web page or exporting your products and services.
