As an Executive Director with NOVACO, serving formerly homeless women survivors of abuse and their families in Northern Virginia, I have seen many of our clients dreams of owning a small business realized, through the support and education received by the Community Business Partnership. NOVACO offers a savings program helping clients save for their dream of their own business. We recommend to all our clients taking classes and working with the expert volunteers and mentors at Community Business Partnership. Several clients have received help writing their Business Plans, or drafting their financial forecast in order to seek loans. Personally I have attended several Seminars where experts are gathered to discuss preparing to start a business, how to find alternative funding sources. These seminars are valuable and offer one-on-one meetings with Venture Capital firms, banks and other resources. Their five class program track offers a strong outline for new businesses to follow. I am pleased that so many of our NOVACO clients went on to be Community Business Partnership clients and successful small business owners.
