Starting a Small Business in Vermont?

Advising is confidential and provided at no-cost! Together we can help you tackle tough questions like:

  • Is my idea a viable business? Does it have legs?
  • What next steps do I need to take to make my business finance ready, market ready and workforce ready?
  • How do I get my business off the ground and maximize my potential for success?

Two ways to get started:

(1) By contacting an advisor:  Click on the “Request Advising” button on the right of this page and tell us about your business idea. A member of our advising team will follow up soon by e-mail with next steps.

(2) On your own! Sign up for our “Starting Your Own Business Workshops” HERE. This workshop, conducted by experienced business advisors, is designed as a guide for the first-time business owner. By the end of this workshop you will be well-informed about tools and resources available to you and the “next steps” involved in launching a successful business. You can also check out the Resources section of our website to access some of these important business tools.
