Entrepreneurs & Startups
From business registration, business plan writing, product or service development, branding and marketing, selling your products and services and acquiring your first customer, there is much to tackle when you decide to start a business. Our unique Idea Validation Pathway will help to guide you through the process. We also have great financial partnerships and connections to business resources.

If you have an existing business, you might be ready to increase sales, further develop strategies and processes or position your organization for profitable-long term growth. We will work to help you design a plan to maximize sales within your current market, or develop new products and evaluate new markets – domestically and internationally.

Because we serve businesses with 500 employees or less, many well-established companies and organizations do not realize that the SBDC at Cleveland State offers the same services to larger organizations that we do to entrepreneurs and small "mom and pop" businesses. Contact us today for an appointment to discuss your business needs and learn more how we can assist you. Click here to schedule your appointment.
