Help in Starting and Growing Your Small Business
The mission of the LCBD is to create on-going mentoring relationships with business owners by providing confidential, independent, objective, and impartial business assessments, based on actual and relevant business experience, available throughout the entire business cycle.
Our mission is accomplished through:
- LCBD Counseling Services: There is a $40 registration fee for City of Loveland residents/businesses to receive free counseling services at the LCBD. City of Loveland residents receive 4 hours of free counseling sessions with the registration fee. The registration fee is due at your first appointment. After you first year of counseling, the fees are tiered, depending on LCBD services required.
- LCBD extended counseling services are available for $150. Talk to your counselor about this option.
- Non-City of Loveland residents pay a $75 registration fee and $30 for each counseling session.
- Low Cost Workshops: A prerequisite for new businesses to receive counseling services at the LCBD is to take the workshop, So You Want to Start A Business (register under Events and Workshops tab). Cost: $30 Loveland residents, $35 for non-Loveland residents. Cash or check is the preferred payment form the day of the class. If your business needs to borrow money, you are required to take the LCBD class, Loan Packet Development, prior to scheduling a counseling appointment specific to seeking financing.
- Help in identifying potential financing and preparing for the loan process
- Access to local, state, and federal resources
