Targeted Services for Unemployed
Understanding the unique challenges faced by unemployed individuals seeking to start their own business, the SBDCs provide services tailored to their specific needs:
Through the our resource partners, SBDC consultants help you address concerns unique to your situation such as repairing credit, finding healthcare options, and looking at more non-traditional sources of financing
Partnerships often enable the SBDC to offer our First Step workshop to you at no charge. You must mention your situation during registration in order to have the fee waived.
Free online training will walk you some of the things you need to consider to get started, including business plan preparation, franchising basics, and accessing credit.
Free, confidential one-on-one consulting will help you assess the feasibility of your business idea and assess the realities of your financing options.
