Small Business Counselling

One-on-one counseling sessions at the Loveland Center for Business Development are designed to provide specific, in-depth assistance with your business. Our counselors can advise you on a wide range of business opportunities and challenges.

Our counseling goals include:

  • Helping you determine whether self-employment and the type of business you have chosen are right for you
  • Helping you identify the strengths and weaknesses of your skills, knowledge, interest, and resources in managing each aspect of your business
  • Helping you determine if your business or business idea will be profitable.
  • Helping you network with other business and community resources that can provide valuable information and expertise to your business start-up or expansion.
    Resources include volunteer business advisors and mentors specializing in areas such as financial analysis, franchising, legal and tax structuring, and marketing.
  • Helping you finance your small business, through your own resources, venture capital, or bank loans

If you are starting a new business, the “So You Want to Start A Business” workshop is a prerequisite prior to scheduling your initial counseling session. The cost of this workshop is $25 for Loveland residents and $30 for non-Loveland residents –  see Events and Workshops tab to register.
