Frequently Asked Questions

Business improvement is a process... we strive to reduce the stress and make your quality journey as productive as possible. Here are some answers about our W7BP..

 

What things should I think about before I contact W7BP?

The best thing to do is get started now. We have worked with all kinds of businesses from start-ups to corporations with decades of experience - we are confident we can work with you at any stage of your business's life-cycle.  If you are unsure about what best suits your needs, our consultations are Free. Don't delay there may be a funded resource to help you take your business to the next level. Don't miss the deadline because of uncertainty.

Why should I choose W7BP instead of another consultant?

First of all, we are an experienced, DSLBD approved source for programmatic information and technical assistance. When you work with us, you are sure to get the "real deal." Yes, there are high-priced consultants who offer similar services - similar does not always mean accurate or effective. The truth is business consulting can be expensive. When you connect with W7BP you are sure to get accurate, reliable information about what works in the DC business environment. Again, if you are unsure about which services best suit your business needs, contact us today - we are always glad to help.

What do these terms, conditions and requirements of this DC program mean?

If you are interested in applying for a DC Government sponsored business program, but you have questions about it details - contact us - we can get you answers. I don't have to tell you that dealing with government programs often means a mountain of questions and red tape... we can help you with that. We can take the stress and uncertainty out of most grant and loan applications. Our experts know the answers and often have access to accurate information others do not have.

I heard about a business program but I do not know how to apply for it?

We are happy to help. Contact us by phone or email and we will get you the accurate information you need. As you know, there are many rumors and a lot of misinformation about available programs. Contact, us and we can save you time and trouble by getting you ready to apply for funded resources that actually exist. 

I have heard all this before - nothing changes in Ward 7.

Yes, unfortunately, there have been broken promises and real change has been slow in our communities - but deep, sweeping changes are happening in Washington, DC. Neighborhoods East of the River will experience unprecedented changes in the next few years. Now is the time to position your business for long-term prosperity and revitalization. We do not have to get left behind. We can work together and form a coalition for business development and progress that will preserve our stake in our District's economy. We are no strangers to adversity - together, we can do remarkable things.

OK, W7BP what's this going to cost me?

The good news is our services are Free. DC government officials are serious about preserving and expanding small business opportunities East of the River... W7BP is a business development initiative working hard to make that happen.
