Small Business and Entrepreneurs
One of the smartest things a small business owner can do for their business is take the time to develop a business plan. OCEDA and the SBDC help small businesses by providing assistance in writing business plans, developing marketing research strategies, and more. These planning and support sessions are free of charge and can make a significant difference in the ultimate success of a business venture.
In addition to providing support with planning, OCEDA can help entrepreneurs and small business owners to overcome challenges. If a business is facing a particular obstacle, OCEDA can look for a solution and make connections with local resources who can help.
Project management support is also available from OCEDA - important for companies who do not have the staff to manage an expansion or relocation project.
Many business owners find it easy to get assistance with incentives such as Revolving Loan Fund and the SBDC support.
