New to Business Advising

Start your business on the path to success.

Congratulations on taking a step toward starting your new business! If you’re new to business, here’s how to get started working with a CTSBDC business advisor.

Step #1 – Complete the assessment.

Complete the short assessment below. This is to ensure you’re in the right spot.

Depending on how you answer the questions, you will be required to complete a short online training, “Starting a New Business,” before you can sign up for advising.

Step #2 – Submit the intake survey and confidentiality agreement.

When you successfully complete the assessment, you’ll be directed to complete an intake survey and confidentiality form.

You will then be contacted within 2 business days by a business advisor.

Step #3 – Upload your business plan.

You must upload your business or a detailed business summary before you meet with your business advisor. You will be able to upload your plan in our database – NeoSerra – once you complete the intake survey and confidentiality agreement.

Reach your business goals.

Professional business advisors are ready to help you investigate capital opportunities, prepare loan documents, export your products, determine growth strategies, complete market research, develop marketing plans, prepare for business disruption, and more.
