Local Help for Small Businesses

So...you have a small business, a very tight budget but you want to get bigger and grow and you need some professional advice.  Sound familiar?  Well, there is free and affordable help out there.  The University of Minnesota has a website that offers lots of advice, guidance resources for small business owners.

The Center of Economic Development, part of UMD, maybe just what you need.  The website offers resources for starting a business, growing your business in addition to keeping you informed of events and offering you lots of resources.  It is a great site to check out if you are looking for some local, free advice and professional help.  They offer other services too such as market analysis, expansion, diversification, marketing research, etc. though you will have to contact them to see if there is a fee.  There is also a link for a Free Consultation. 

Anyways, check them out!  You can view the site at https://umdced.wp.d.umn.edu/
