Business Mentoring

Are you planning to start a business in the Greenwood area? Do you already own a business and are looking for advice to grow it?

Local business owners have access to free, confidential, one-on-one business coaching at the Chamber office through any one of our partners with Business Ownership Initiative (BOI), the Indiana Small Business Development Center (ISBDC) and SCORE, counselors to America’s small business.

Business mentors can help you start or grow your business and solve business challenges, and can also provide demographic, marketing and financial analysis reports.

Additionally, BOI offers small business loans (microloans) from $1,000 to $50,000+.  Loans are available for startups or existing businesses.  No minimum credit score is required.  Your interest rate will be prime plus 3% to 8%.  Schedule an appointment with BOI for more details.

Potential and current business owners do not have to be a member of the Greater Greenwood Chamber to take advantage of business mentoring and microlending services.

Schedule your appointment with BOI, ISBDC or SCORE:
