Open To Business - Free Business Resources
New Program to Help Existing and Prospective Business Owners in Anoka County
Looking for a trusted advisor for your business? Maybe you’ve wanted to secure financing to start or expand your business? If so, a new program offered by Anoka County may be just what you’re looking for.
Thanks to a partnership between the County and the Metropolitan Consortium of Community Developers (MCCD), business owners or those looking to start a new business can access a new program called Open to Business.
Free Technical Assistance
Open to Business will provide prospective and existing entrepreneurs with free one-on-one counseling with a business advisor. The program provides assistance in the following areas:
- financial management
- loan packaging
- business plan assistance
- real estate analysis
- marketing assistance
- strategic planning
- business regulations
- professional referrals
Small Business Loan Program
Open to Business advisors can also assist entrepreneurs to identify borrowing needs and accessing financing options. Advisors work with clients to help them find the financing that best meets their own unique needs. MCCD also provides direct financing and loans in partnership with banks and nonprofit lenders. Funds can be used for inventory, working capital, asset and equipment purchases, real estate acquisition, and start-up costs.
How it Works
Business Advisor Kathleen DuChene can meet you at your business, or an Anoka County City Hall Office - where she holds office hours each month, or a place that is convenient for you.
For more information on the services offered or to schedule an appointment, contact Kathleen DuChene at MCCD at 763-438-7315 or email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
