How it works: Business consulting is provided at no cost to qualified small business owners and key decision makers. The Central California SBDC Network has 6 full time Centers serving 14 counties to provide businesses with expert consulting, workshops, and technical assistance. 

The sign-up process only takes a few minutes and whatever you share remains confidential. The local Service Center will contact you and connect you with the appropriate Business Advisor or other resource. You will meet with your Business Advisor in-person, on the phone, over the internet – whatever works for your schedule – and work together to establish and reach your goals. It’s like having another confidential member on your team at no cost to you.
