Certified Business Advisors offer:

  • Strategic planning 
  • Technical assistance 
  • Information about Federal, state and local programs 
  • Loan packaging assistance 
  • Cash flow analysis

  • The majority of our services are offered at no charge to those who own, operate or wish to start a for-profit small business.
  •  We are not limited by geographic territory or chamber membership. 
  • All consultations are CONFIDENTIAL.
  •  SBDC Network Specialists are available to assist small businesses in manufacturing, exporting, government contracting, and minority and women business ownership.


An entrepreneur or owner must have a strong personal commitment to finding and implementing solutions to issues facing that company. The Ohio SBDC at the Clermont Chamber consulting approach is one of guidance and education, not completing the work for the client.
