Beyond Start-up...

Once your business has passed the start-up stage you face new challenges. In today's competitive marketplace business owners often have to juggle many jobs. Resources can be stretched thin and it can be difficult to manage and grow your business.

Is it time to hire employees? Do you need to enhance your marketing plan? Develop a new sales process? Is it time to expand? Do you need additional financing?  These are only a few of the questions you may be asking yourself once you've established your business. 

The Small Business Centre offers Advisory assistance and a variety of resources and services to help you refine your business management skills and create a plan for growth.
