Business Advisory Services

Our services to businesses and entrepreneurs are free.

Business Planning

Venture Niagara offers business planning programs and one-on-one meetings with our experienced business councilors. Financing conditions often require an in-depth review of the business and the development of a plan to address any shortcomings prior to receiving financing. When outside consultants are required for this service, initial meetings are typically paid by Venture Niagara.


Seminars and Workshops

Services and events organized by Venture Niagara can include:

  • Discussions about lending institutions
  • Insights about importing and trading

Follow us on social media to find our upcoming events.


Our community partners can help direct business start-ups in creating a business plan or provide information on relevant federal and provincial programs and services.
