Starting up a new business isn’t easy, with customer service, marketing and dozens of other tasks. But Berwyn startups now have help.
On Tuesday, Nov. 27 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., SCORE, a Chicago resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration will be offering free business counseling to anyone interested.
SCORE will offer a variety of tips including how to begin a plan of attack for startup businesses and offer help to existing businesses seeking to further grow and expand. SCORE will also give feedback to people who want to showcase product or service.
In the past, SCORE has helped many businesses including ChillinJoy, a business specializing in chilling and keeping wine fresh and tasty. Three months after ChillinJoy received help from SCORE, nine different retailers now carry ChillinJoy products along with having high traffic on their website.
Counseling sessions are offered every fourth Tuesday of the month at the Berwyn Development Corporation located on 3322 Oak Park Ave. with bilingual sessions being offered every second Tuesday of the month at Morton College.
