Appointments are available on February 20, March 6 and March 20 between 9 – 11 a.m. Meeting opportunities are provided at no cost and are supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the State of New Jersey, and the County of Mercer.

“The NJSBDC provides comprehensive services to potential and existing small businesses at little cost to the State, but with enormous returns for our state economy,” said Senator Turner. “The free counseling provided by the NJSBDC will enable New Jersey’s small business to capture their full potential. Any small business in search of information and support to help them grow should take advantage of this counseling opportunity.”
