Is your small business ready for the next level?

The Growth Readiness Assessment can help you and your business team prepare for growth. It is provided free of change and with no obligation on your part. It is open to companies that are located in New Hampshire, have been in business for at least 12 months, and have filed a federal tax return.

The Growth Readiness Assessment involves two self-guided online tools designed to provide insight into your company’s strengths and its suitability for the different types of business loans and investments available to you. When we receive your results, we’ll call you to arrange a site visit in which we’ll discuss your growth goals and identify some next steps and resources to help you achieve them.

The steps are:

  1. Skills Assessment. This online survey will help you evaluate your sales and marketing, financial-management, and business-planning skills. (20-30 minutes)
  2. Capital Compass®. This short series of multiple-choice questions will help you explore what type, or types, of financing might be most appropriate for your business, and why. Your answers are confidential. (15 to 20 minutes)
  3. Site visit. After you have completed the skills assessment and the Capital Compass®, an experienced business lender will call you to schedule a site visit.

If you’re ready to start, you can open the Skills Assessment now, or bookmark the page to revisit later.
