JAX Chamber Small Business Center
The first step to success with the Jacksonville Women’s Business Center is to sign up for a Small Business Orientation with the JAX Chamber Small Business Center. Through the orientation process, entrepreneurs are introduced to the resources available at the Small Business Center and complete an Entrepreneurial Assessment to help determine if a business idea can become a viable business.
One-on-one guidance is provided at no charge and provides participants with counseling services from SCORE (current and retired CEO expertise), certified business analysts from the Small Business Development Center at the University of North Florida and government contracting counseling from the Florida Procurement Technical Assistance Center.
