Our team of professional consultants work confidentially with entrepreneurs in Erie, Crawford, Mercer and Warren Counties to help individuals start their for-profit business or those already in (for-profit) business. SBDC assistance for start-up entities includes filing requirements in Pennsylvania, business planning and market research. For existing business operations, assistance can range from human resources, management, planning and financing to name a few.
