Who qualifies for SBDC services?

Any small business owner or any individual considering starting or purchasing a business are eligible for free, confidential assistance. We have a successful process that start-up companies must complete, including online training, prior to counsel.

Whereas we typically service companies in our Mercer County service area, we are funded by the federal state and county government and therefore are available to assist any business owner. It is strongly encouraged business owners seek assistance from their local SBDC center as we will be referring them to their appropriate center. Please click here for the list of New Jersey Centers.

How much do these services cost?

There are no fees for one-on-one confidential counseling. Our counseling services are provided by highly-qualified specialists, private consultants, and faculty and SBDC staff from The College of New Jersey. We have a successful process that start-up companies must complete, including online training, prior to counsel. There is a small fee for the start-up online training.
