Counseling Form
Anchor 1

We offer no-cost, 1:1 business counseling on topics such as business planning, government contracting, marketing strategy, obtaining needed certifications, budgeting, financing, and more.


To arrange a free one-to-one session, please complete the counseling request form at NYSBDC eCenter Direct and a Pace SBDC staff member will be back in contact to finalize. And on the last screen in the “Area of Assistance” section be sure to indicate what you would like assistance with, and whether you would prefer an in-person session at Pace University, the Brooklyn Public Library’s main branch or the NY Public Library Business Library or to meet virtually, and what day/time would be best. The form will just take a few minutes, and as a reminder, all Pace SBDC services are offered at no cost.  

Once you submit the form, a Pace SBDC team member will contact you to arrange a 1:1 counseling session. You may also email us at with any questions


  • Pace SBDC is part of a network of 20 campus-based centers and outreach offices across NY State. We mainly serve the five boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens & Staten Island) of New York City.

  • To​ maintain continuity of service, we ask that each individual meets only with one Small Business Development Center. If you’ve met with another SBDC before, please reach out to them for an appointment.
