Do you need help starting your own business? Do you have questions and you don't know who to ask? Meet one-on-one with experienced professionals to start or grow your business. Since we are partially funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), consultations can be done for free.
Get assistance on business planning. Having a thorough business plan is important because it not only is a requirement of investors and lenders but it also provides you with a roadmap to business success. A business plan often allows business owners to see things from a new perspective as well as to face and mitigate risks not thought of before. It is also a great guidepost for your employees as to the goals and objectives of your business. Please note: We cannot write business plans.

I have owned my own business for 28 years. Approximately three years ago, sales dropped and I was in need of help. I had already moved to a new location, cutting my rent in half. My sales continued to be too low to cover my expenses and support myself. I needed advice on how to "stay-in-business". I called the Florida Tech Women's Business Center and was referred to Mary Baldwin, Certified Financial Planner. She met with me a couple of times and offered valuable advice. After the changes she advised, I am now showing a profit and able to see a successful future. The help I was given was just the right thing at the right time." - Catherine "Kitty" Hatton, Melbourne Dancewear, Inc.
