Starting a business is a rewarding, life-changing process. With many critical questions, it can be a challenge to know where and how to find the answers. The SBTDC can help. Your first step in working with us is to complete our start-up assessment and answer some general questions about the business you intend to start and the research you have completed. Based on where you are in your start-up process, we will recommend a course of action and connect you with the resources that you need to achieve your business goals.
Our business advisors work with hundreds of clients each year, and they have in-depth knowledge and experience, which enables them to help entrepreneurs navigate through the tough issues they face when starting a business. In fact, 83% of our pre-venture clients go on to start their business.
