A Free Service to any Hopkins Business or Resident
With the help of a matching grant from Hennepin County, the City of Hopkins has contracted with the Metropolitan Consortium of Community Developers to provide free one-on-one business consultation to Hopkins residents or entrepreneurs who want to start a new business or grow an existing business in the community.
This is a free service. Participants can meet with certified “Open to Business” consultants by appointment and get help planning and working through small business challenges such as:
- Accounting, book keeping set-up and training
- Business acquisition
- Business start-up
- Business plan development
- Cash flow, financial and business analysis
- Loan packaging
- Strategic planning
- Commercial real estate analysis
In addition, “Open to Business” advisors can assist entrepreneurs in identifying borrowing needs and financing options. Direct financing and loans up to $25,000 are also available through the “Open to Business” program.
