Community Business Partnership - Connect with Us
Community Business Partnership offers one-on-one counseling sessions on specific business issues including business plan review, marketing, financial forecasting, bookkeeping and accounting, registration and certifications, contracts and intellectual property. Due to high demand, sessions with our expert volunteers is limited to one session per year (with one follow-up session approved by the counselor). Many business questions can be answered in our classroom training sessions.
To take advantage of our counseling sessions, register for our Small Business Resources Orientation. This free seminar is strongly recommended for all first-time visitors to CBP. During this seminar we discuss the types of resources, training and counseling offered here at CBP; and introduce you to the qualified staff members who schedule and/or provide one-on-one counseling. This allows you to determine the right counselor for your particular business needs.
