How Business Coaching works?

Business Coaching at The Biz Foundry is FREE thanks to the federal and state grants we get to help grow the entrepreneurial ecosystem in our region. Our Business Coaching is designed to be milestone based.  This means you can book subsequent meetings after your initial consultation to check-in on your progress.  Most entrepreneurs meeting with us 1-2 times per month as needed.


Book a Start HERE meeting with one of our coaches. In this initial meeting we will learn more about where you are in your business, your vision for its future and then we’ll help you determine at least one goal or next step for growth.


Following your initial meeting we will connect you with the resources, experts and tools you need to reach your goals. Having the right connections is essential to business success and we are here to help you foster those relationships.


You can book a follow-up meeting to check-in with your coach on the progress you’ve made with your goals and milestones. We are also here to be a sounding board to support you through the ups & downs of business ownership.
