The KSBDC helps established firms, growth companies and pre-venture businesses meet challenges, manage change, find resources, and plan for the future in today's evolving global marketplace.
To meet specific needs, the KSBDC offers individualized, confidential and comprehensive business consulting at no charge to our clients. KSBDC consultants are skilled professionals with expertise in many areas, including marketing and sales, accounting, financial analysis and cost control, personnel (HR) issues, inventory controls, business start-up or acquisition, business liquidation or sale, strategic planning and many other areas. KSBDC consultants bring a wealth of experience from many different industries.
The KSBDC consulting approach is one of guidance and education, not of doing the work for the client. The KSBDC focuses on more than just helping a business owner write a business plan or fill out a loan application. That is why we focus on the holistic approach to business. We review all the different areas that affect business health and ultimately, the bottom line. Our "Request for Consulting" form includes a "Statement of Understanding" that explains client rights and responsibilities. Consulting can be done face-to-face, electronically or by email.
The KSBDC collaborates with a wide variety of resources, consultants, faculty and other business professionals to provide the information you need to be successful. If we cannot answer a client's question directly, we will tap into our statewide and national network of other SBDC consultants, as well as other resources to help the business succeed.
