Small Business Services


We take pride in helping businesses succeed and believe that entrepreneurship is key to creating a better economy and thriving community.

The Center helps businesses throughout the spectrum of their development lifecycle, and is creating jobs for our community by helping LGBT entrepreneurs start and grow businesses. We offer a variety of programs including one-on-one counseling, an innovative rapid credit-building microloan, workshops on access to capital preparation, small business mentorship and referrals to our vast small business development network.

From testing your idea to launching your business, the Center offers ongoing support for entrepreneurs to bring their businesses to life. Through one-on-one coaching, clients have the opportunity to meet with a business specialist who will review their current situation, assess their needs and work with them to develop a concrete action plan.

Mentors help shape the people we are and the decisions we make by sharing their knowledge and experience. The mentorship program is designed to help entrepreneurs and small business owners advance to the next stage of development by providing a match with a seasoned expert in their industry sector.

Tools to manage your business. Tips to improve efficiency. Local resources to support you along the way. The Center and Visa are working to provide you with resources to make your business run smarter, faster and easier
