Free Business Counseling from UGA SBDC - COVID19

Business News ,

A message from the UGA Small Business Development Office in Rome:

The Small Business Development Center understands that many small businesses will suffer a decline in business as a result of COVID-19.  Social distancing protocols are an important part of controlling the spread of the virus, but may also have an unintended significant negative impact on business activity.  

We are here to help with one-on-one counseling services and can accommodate with teleconferencing in lieu of face-to-face meetings. As we are funded by the SBA and the University of Georgia, these services are provided at no cost to the business owner.  

Our focus during this unique and challenging time is helping small businesses with a tactical plan, cash flow issues, and connecting them with the resources that may be of help.  

We have three experienced business consultants on staff who have the experience to help small business during challenging times.  Appointments may be scheduled by calling 706-622-2006 or  emailing [email protected].  Other resources are available at
