The Process

Contact us by phone at 585-236-4140, or email us at [email protected].

You will speak with one of our Network Navigators, who will gather information about your business and assess your needs. They will then connect you with the appropriate  resources to help you achieve your goals. Someone from our team will follow up with you a few weeks later to inquire about your level of satisfaction with the services provided. These referral services are provided at no cost to entrepreneurs and small business owners within the Finger Lakes region.
