Are you working with or have you worked with an ESO?
Entrepreneur Support Organizations (ESO)s are typically non-profit organizations that offer services to entrepreneurs, particularly from disinvested or marginalized communities. They offer resources like low-cost training, coaching, or access to capital.
Not yet, but I'm planning to.
We can help! Would you like us to offer guidance?

How would estimate your annual sales?
We know that COVID-19 has drastically affected the ability for businesses to function normally. But we ask that you would give your best estimate under more regular conditions. For example, what were your average monthly sales prior to the pandemic? Use this as a basis for estimating your annual sales.
I haven't made any sales yet.
Are you still waiting to make a sale? That's OK.
It takes time to build a successful business. Making the first few sales represents a significant milestone, and we want to help get you there. We recommend taking a look at our resource directory or joining one of our community groups. You connect with other entrepreneurs and get valuable advice.
