New temporary offices being set up and at your door service possible
(March 18, 2013) Newark - A cadre of consultants, funded through a special grant, are now available to help small business owners directly focus on innovation and strategies to reopen, restore and rejuvenate businesses through the myriad of regulation and red tape.
Administered by the New Jersey Small Business Development Centers Network, the program experts will provide pro bono one-on-one, up to date, realistic advice at an existing or temporary NJSBDC service center, or your own business site when appropriate. The priority is to help businesses in the “red zone” hit hardest by the storm.
The NJSBDC experts will help identify the needs of the particular business and customize an approach that helps sustain growth. This special outreach program, which focuses on Monmouth, Ocean, Cape May, Atlantic, Hudson and Bergen Counties, is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Small Business Administration
The NJSBDC network is an official partner of the NJ Business Action Center within the NJ Department of State headed by Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno. The network is collaborating with state and federal funding partners to help with Sandy recovery efforts. To schedule an individual session in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, call 732-842-8685 or visit www.mosbdc.com.
