Request for Counseling


The first step to obtaining services from Central Virginia SBDC is to submit your Online Request for Counseling.

New clients will also need to download and fill out a Pre-Counseling Questionnaire.   After completing the Pre-Counseling Questionnaire, simply return it to us as an attachment via email at

Once we receive your Online Request for Counseling and completed Pre-Counseling Questionnaire, we will follow-up with you via phone or email to schedule your appointment.

New clients who have not yet started their business must also attend a free “How to Start Your Own Small Business” class before meeting one-on-one with an SBDC Business Advisor. New clients who have started a business that is not yet 1-year old are encouraged to attend this class before meeting with an SBDC Business Advisor.  To complete this client eligibility requirement, please see our current listing of upcoming workshops and register for a class session on a date and time that is workable for you.

If you are starting a new business and would like to determine your readiness, you may wish to take the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Online Readiness Assessment.
