The Local Business Advisor Program is a partnership between Town of Westport and Social Venture Partners (SVP), a Westport-based non-profit organization. The program provides support to Westport’s businesses as they navigate the current COVID-19 crisis and plan strategically for the post-COVID-19 business environment.
SVP volunteers will be paired with local business owners to provide cost-free, individual, and confidential advisory services on such issues as:
- Basic Financial Modeling
- Understanding COVID-19-related government programs and loan options
- Online Business Platforms, Marketing and Social Media
- Human Resource Issues
Businesses are eligible to participate in the program if they have a bricks and mortar presence in Westport, an employee base, and have been an established business for at least one year.
Westport-based businesses interested in participating in the Local Business Advisor Program should email LBAPInfo@westportct.gov.
