Are you ready to start a business?

This Small Business Readiness Assessment tool from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is designed to help you better understand your readiness for starting a small business. It is simple to use and will take less than five minutes to complete. The tool will prompt you with questions and assist you in evaluating skills, characteristics and experience as they relate to your preparedness for starting a business.

Your responses will be scored automatically when you click the Submit button. This score will be used to develop your assessment profile. Based on your score, you will also receive a statement of Suggested Next Steps, directing you to the most appropriate SBA resources to help improve your business preparedness. These suggested next steps may include free SBA online courses, direct access to online counseling or targeted links to appropriate resources.

After you've completed the assessment, we invite you to return to this site to register for a free, one-on-one business counseling session with an E-Magnify counselor.

We offer services and tools for all stages of business, from Entry to Emerging to Established.
