If you own a small business or want to start one, you have to do a lot of things yourself. Being your own boss is part of the appeal, right?
At times, though, you may wish you had someone to give you feedback or advise you on financial planning, marketing, or other parts of business ownership.
That’s where the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center comes in.
We provide one-to-one confidential guidance that can be specifically tailored to your business venture. Primary areas of assistance include planning, financial analysis, market research, loan packaging, online and traditional marketing, growth
and expansion, management, and profitability.
These consulting services are free of charge for Arkansas small businesses. Whether you are a first-time entrepreneur or are looking for a competitive edge for your established business, we want to help you grow and succeed.
Appointments are required for business consulting and can usually be scheduled within a few days of the initial contact. New or prospective business owners are encouraged to attend one of our startup seminars before meeting with a business consultant.
