Assessment Tool

Are You Ready to Start a Business?

This assessment tool is designed to help you better understand your readiness for starting a small business.  It is simple to use and will take less than 5 minutes to complete.  The tool will prompt you with questions and assist you in evaluating skills, characteristics and experience – as they relate to your preparedness for starting a business. 
Your responses will be scored automatically and an assessment profile provided, when you click the submit button.  You will also receive, based on your score, a statement of Suggested Next Steps, directing you to the most appropriate SBA resources to help improve your business preparedness.  Such next steps may include free SBA online courses, direct access to online counseling and/or targeted links to appropriate resources.
