SBDC Offers Consulting Services

SBDC Consulting Services

The UMD Center for Economic Development (UMD CED) has developed a pool of business resource specialists to support businesses located within Koochiching County. Services are provided through the Small Business Development Center located in the Koochiching Economic Development Authority (KEDA).

 This project is funded through the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration (EDA) and local funds from Koochiching County and the City of International Falls as part of the ongoing Voyage Forward initiative. Funding is available to help the region recover from the permanent workforce reduction at the Boise Paper Mill in 2013. Areas of consulting expertise include, but are not limited to, business feasibility analysis and studies, strategic planning, legal and accounting consultation, website development, marketing, consulting, and product export assistance. Other specialized services may be provided based on specific business requirements, consultant expertise, and available funding.

Services are generally provided at the International Falls SBDC office located at the KEDA, the client’s business site, or via electronic methods. Projects for this grant funded initiative must be located in Koochiching County.
