Business Planning and Financial Analysis:
The Vermont Small Business Development Center (VtSBDC) is a great resource offering advising and training for all types of businesses in Vermont. Through one-to-one advising and coaching services, business owners discover, explore, and choose the options that are right for their business and in line with their goals.
We seek long-term, in-depth relationships with business owners and provide no-cost, confidential advising throughout the state. We recommend starting with the Area Advisor who can be found by visiting http://www.vtsbdc.org/location.
For pre-venture entrepreneurs, our “Starting Your Own Business” workshop gives people an understanding of what it takes to build a successful, sustainable business. Additionally, we help connect early-stage business owners with a broad variety of state and local resources to help get them started right.
