Additional assistance was provided on negotiation and securing a Lease for the business location, a review of General Contractor estimates for the build out, registering the business in Illinois, obtaining insurance, hiring employees and community based marketing.
Janene Gatling, Owner of College Nannies and Tutors stated, "The SBDC at College of DuPage was the golden nugget that I was looking for and needed. The old adage is true, "you don't know, what you don't know" when opening a business. The classes that they offer for a charge are beneficial and have value; the staff provided insightful assistance and were eager and willing to answer any question. I would and have recommended the SBDC to several people. It helped me and I truly believe the program can help others."
