SBDC To Host Meeting At Library

Business advisers from the Small Business Development Center will be available at the Prendergast Library to answer any business related questions at no cost.

Advisers will be available on Jan. 14 and Jan. 23 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Prendergast Library, 509 Cherry St., Jamestown.

Anyone can attend on a first come, first served basis to ask general business start-up or expansion questions or more specific industry questions. SBDC Advisers are experts in business plan development, packaging loan applications, financial planning including cost analysis and revenue projections, marketing and social media assistance, export and procurement guidance, complying with permit, licensing, and other regulations, productivity enhancement, and supporting the start-up and/or expansion process for small businesses. Services are confidential and free of charge.

Seeking out information before starting your business is a positive sign that you will have the discipline it takes to operate a successful business. A business operation requires management, record keeping, taxes, financing, marketing, permits, competition analysis and research.

Since SBDC started in 1986, advisers have worked with more than 11,600 businesses, helping them to invest over $135,600,000 into the area’s economy, and create or save more than 6,100 jobs.
