Tools You Need for Starting a Business.

We serve the aspiring entrepreneur who needs to understand the requirements for going into business, financial management issues, marketing techniques and strategies, business plan development and implementation, and the qualifications for obtaining start-up funds.

Before meeting with the SV SBDC, we ask that you attend one of our Start Smart Workshops.  This workshop will prepare you to have a much more productive meeting with an SBDC Business Advisor. You can find all workshops on the Workshops & Events Calendar.

Then we can work with you to discuss your ideas, conduct market research on your product and your customer, prepare a business plan and cash flow projections, and set realistic financial and profitability goals. Here are some topics to consider prior to your SBDC sessions.
