Rx for Small Business

Now available in Napa County and funded by the Workforce Alliance of the North Bay, the Rx for Business program is an excellent way for small businesses to improve their bottom-line through an intensive analysis of their business operations.

The Rx for Business is designed as a check -up for businesses in Napa County.  To qualify for this FREE program, a business must be located in Napa County, be at least one year old, hold recent financial statements and have employees.  Under the Rx program, a highly experienced Business Advisor from the Small Business Development Center will conduct intensive business review focused on the following areas:

  • Existing Business Plan
  • Financial & Operational Statement
  • Cost of Goods & Gross Margin
  • Administrative & Organizational Structure
  • On-Site Interviews with Key Personnel
  • Operations Including Work Scheduling, Inventory & Quality Control

Upon completion of the review, the business receives a comprehensive report outlining the Advisor's findings and recommendations.  Free one-on-one advising is then available to help the business develop a plan to implement the recommendations.
