Does Your Business Need Help

by blogmistress on January 13, 2009

Good news business owners! One of the greatest sources of help in the state of Arkansas is free! The Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center (ASBTDC) offers services you may not even know about. A little information about ASBTDC from Herb Lawrence, ASBTDC Center Director:

Our consulting services and information assistance is all free of charge and completely confidential. My consultant and I will work with anywhere from 160 to 200 small businesses and entrepreneurs each year providing assistance with business plan development, market feasibility, business financial analysis, business valuations and loan packaging.

We also have a large proprietary database and on line reference library where we can help small business owners get answers to basic question, provide sample business plans, provide information about SBA loan programs, etc. On a typical year the ASU SBTDC will fill over 800 information requests.

Finally we conduct an average of 60 small business training workshops throughout our 15 county area on topics such as Starting A Business in Arkansas, Business Financing Options, Market Research, Guerrilla Marketing, Cash Flow Planning and more.

All of our consulting assistance and information research is completely free and confidential for any small business owner or start up in our territory thanks to our grant from the SBA. Some of our training seminars are also offered at no cost although others do have a registration fee usually between $35 and $49 dollars – basically to cover expenses related to the workshop.

Herb recently wrote a great blog post for The Voice of Batesville
about keeping cash flowing during a recession. Take advantage of these great services for your small business. To contact ASBTDC:
