'Open to Business' Free Consulting at City Hall

Wednesday, February 20

Starting or growing a small business isn’t easy, and hiring a trusted advisor or consultant to help get a business off the ground is usually very expensive. To encourage small business growth, the City of Burnsville is now offering free, one-on-one small business consulting to current and future Burnsville small businesses and entrepreneurs.

Beginning in February – through a partnership with the Dakota County Community Development Association (CDA), the Burnsville and Northern Dakota County Regional Chambers of Commerce, and the Metropolitan Consortium of Community Developers (MCCD) – the City will have a certified “Open to Business” consultant available to offer free consulting services:

Where:         Burnsville City Hall 
                   100 Civic Center Parkway

When:          Third Wednesday of every month 
                    1-3 p.m.

This service is free to any Burnsville business or resident. The consultant will be available for walk-in appointments, and can help plan and work through small business challenges such as:

• Accounting and record keeping
• Business acquisition
• Business start-up
• Business plan development
• Cash flow, financial and business analysis
• Loan packaging
• Networking
• Operations
• Strategic planning
• Commercial real estate analysis

In addition, “Open to Business” advisors can assist entrepreneurs in identifying borrowing needs and financing options. Direct financing and loans up to $25,000 are also available through the “Open to Business” program.
