Entrepreneurial Development

Have you always dreamed of starting your own business but lack the expertise to know where to begin? JARI’s team of seasoned professionals has a combined 155 years experience in economic and entrepreneurial development.

Since 2008, we have played a role in the successful startup of approximately 50 new businesses.

JARI can help existing and would-be small business owners achieve their goals by assisting with everything from writing a business plan to navigating key state, local, and federal agencies to lining up low-interest financing. And we won’t stop there.

JARI’s Entrepreneurial Development services include ongoing support and one-to-one counseling to help you assess how your business is performing and identify opportunities that will enable you to become more competitive.

JARI has partnered with the Pennsylvania Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) to provide entrepreneurs in our region with the education, information, and tools necessary to build lucrative businesses. We are your one-stop resource to get your business up and running and take your company to the next level.
