Business Planning

SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER:
PCEDC cost-shares a contract with the Washburn University Small Business Development Center through which we share the services of a regional small business consultant with adjoining jurisdictions.

SBDC Consultant services are confidential and available at no cost to new entrepreneurs and emerging small businesses ready to expand. Services include assistance with developing business plans, market projections, financial projections, and related analysis and materials needed to enable a new or expanding small business to be bankable. Services may include helping a new business develop relationships with local banks, USDA, SBA, the PCEDC Revolving Loan Fund and other financial resources.
Moreover, our relationship with SBDC allows prospects to link to a national network of expert small business assistance services when necessary.
