Team Jefferson Technical Assistance
Are you a business on the edge? The recent global economic recession has created a challenging business climate for people around the world; rural areas are often hit later and harder than larger urban areas. If you find yourself wondering how you can meet next month's cash flow needs, or are looking for creative and strategic ways you might tweak your business plan to diversify your product line or increase market share, a Team Jefferson work team is available to consult with you. Because the Team comprises over twenty volunteers with a diverse range of experience, expertise, and talent, we can hand-pick the right combination of skilled people to consult with you on your unique needs.

Team Jefferson Enterprise Development
Team Jefferson work teams are also available to meet with established businesses that need a creative "think-tank." Perhaps your business has been successful for many years, but you now feel stuck in a rut. Perhaps you are ready to expand, and are looking for creative ways to do so. Perhaps you're ready to take your business to the next level of excellence. Team members are available to meet with businesses seeking enterprise development.

S.C.O.R.E.

Do you have a great idea for a business, but aren't sure where to begin? Have you launched a small business, but find yourself at the stage where you need to create a business plan? Do you need a good business mind to help you think through some of the details of structure, operations, or cash flow management? 

Our SCORE counselors are here to help. SCORE stands for Service Corps of Retired Executives; our SCORE counselors are experienced professionals who have a head for business and a heart of gold. They offer their free services to people in the "I have a dream" and emerging stages of business development.

Interested in becoming a SCORE counselor?
We are always looking to expand our Corps of business mentors. Because SCORE is a nation-wide non-profit, training takes place in Seattle. Team Jefferson can help facilitate training and travel; contact us for more info!

WSU Small Business Development Center

The WSU Port Townsend Small Business Development Center offers one-stop assistance to individuals and small businesses by providing a wide variety of information and guidance. Small Business Development Centers are cooperative efforts of the private sector, the educational community and federal, state and local governments. The Port Townsend SBDC is a great resource for people who already have a business plan, or have been in business for a few years.

Washington State Department of Commerce

Perhaps you'd like to tap into regional or global markets, but aren't sure how to take the next steps. Perhaps you've developed a specialized product for the aerospace industry, and would like technical assistance from someone with expertise in that industry sector.
