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
Advisory information shall be held in strict confidence and will not be shared with the Town by SVP. 

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
