  • 1. Do you have an idea?

    Have you been sitting on an idea for a new business but aren’t sure of what to do next?

  • 2. Information overload

    Tired of attending workshops and conferences that introduce you to relevant information but don’t provide practical, customized assistance for implementation?

    How might the “effectual logic” process used by successful serial entrepreneurs give you a platform for developing your company?

  • 4. Access resources

    Looking for a one-stop shop for business-related state and federal services, including help with creating your own company and completing regulatory paperwork?

  • 5. Get certified

    Have you taken advantage of certifications that make your company more competitive, especially at the federal level, such as Veteran Owned Business (VOB), Minority Owned Business (MBE), Woman Owned Business (WBE), Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), Locally Owned Business (LBE), Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), Section 3, SAM Registration, HUBZone, and 8(a) certifications, among many others?
