Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help me start a new business?


Yes, of course, we can. Our Start Wisely Program is designed to address the needs of new business ventures. This program is a combination of training and consulting designed for the new entrepreneur. Check out details found on the Start Wisely page.




I've been in business several years now, who should I turn to for help in getting to the next level?


Come to NW-NJSBDC, of course! We are highly skilled, experienced advisors from many industries and with diverse business skills. If you think we don't have anything to offer your business, you may wish to check out our B-GAP Protocol for High-Growth/High-Impact clients. Our mandate from the SBA (Small Business Administration) is to handle SMBs (Small to Medium-sized Businesses). Depending on the industry, an SMB can be as large as $33 million in revenues or 500 employees. We're here to serve most businesses in NJ; in fact, the SMB definition covers 95% of NJ companies. Schedule an appointment to see how we can help.




How often can I come for Advisory Services?


The simple answer is: as often as you need to. But that has practical constraints. We see hundreds of clients each year ans we have to fairly distribute our resources among them. We ask clients to implement activities that we have proposed. But most important we want to make sure that you're making progress. Therefore, we ask all returning clients ( schedule here) to complete a Pre-Appointment report containing the following information:

  • Accomplishments since last session
  • Discussion items for upcoming session
  • Goals anticipated for the next period
Then you aand your Advisor is fully prepared to make good use of one of your most valuable resources - your time.
