Irene Business Recovery
Whether your business was physically affected by the flooding or you've had continuing economic impact from Tropical Storm Irene, VtSBDC has added special advisors to help you. Click here for information on how you can access our one-on-one, no-cost, confidential services.
We understand that many businesses are still experiencing "fallout" from Tropical Storm Irene. This is not unusual, all data collected on major disasters show that the impact certainly continues for months and sometimes longer. If your business is still trying to repair, re-open or rejuvenate we can help. VtSBDC was awarded a grant from the federal government that has allowed us to add additional advisors to work specifically with you and your unique set of challenges and opportunities.
Types of areas we can assist you with:
Financial assessment of your current situation -- exactly where are you now in terms of cash flow and sales
Long-term financial planning - what needs to be done to make your business sustainable
Loan package development - if you need money how do you go about it
Brainstorming solutions - what is the overall picture of your business now and what can be done to improve it
Marketing plans - what are you doing now to get the word out, is it working and what do you need to change
SBA loans - if you still have steps to complete or you want to plan how to use your loan amount in the most impactful way
Perspective - sometimes all you need is someone outside of your staff and family to talk to about your concerns and your plans
The advising can be at your location and is always confidential and no-cost.
We encourage you to call and make an appointment. We are prepared to help.
