SBDC SERVICES

SMALL BUSINESS COUNSELING

The PISBDCN provides free, confidential, one-to-one counseling in all areas of business management, including pre-venture feasibility, business plan development, marketing, record keeping, financial and human resource management, operations management, and access to capital (loans & investors), as well as specialized areas such as international trade and technical services.

This service is available to all existing and/or potential small business owners/managers that are US citizens, green card holders or citizens of the Freely AssociatedStates.

Because the SBDC maintains links to small business resources through its membership of the U.S. Association of Small Business Development Centers (ASBDC), its partnership with the U.S. SBA, the National Business Incubation Association, and other economic development groups regionally and internationally, we are able to refer local businesses to high- quality external sources of information and ideas.


SMALL BUSINESS TRAINING

The SBDC offers an ongoing program of workshops, conferences, and seminars all designed to meet the needs of local small businesses. Courses range from introductory workshops for those just starting out in business to advanced programs aimed at enhancing the growth potential of established businesses. Training courses are presented at low cost and are offered at either the SBDC training center or other convenient, central locations based on demand.
