The ASBTDC provides, at no cost, one-to-one professional consulting for business owners and entrepreneurs. Help available includes: advice on operating challenges in existing businesses, review of business plans and strategies, guidance in starting new businesses, preparation of loan requests, financial analysis and budget development.  A "New Venture Guide", which is available on our lead center's web site (Click Here), offers guidance in handling new business operations and finances. The UAM SBTDC neither lends money nor administers grants. However, business consultants can assist small business owners in meeting their operating challenges.

New business owners are strongly encouraged to attend the Arkansas SBTDC seminar, "Starting a Business in Arkansas" before meeting with a consultant. Additionally, submitting a copy of a completed business plan prior to the consultant meeting will enable the consultant to provide valuable feedback during the consulting process. Appointments are required to meet with a consultant and are usually able to be scheduled within a few days of the initial phone call.
