We do an extensive initial interview. We ask you over a hundred questions to make
sure we do not waste your time or energy on a project we do not believe will succeed.
We will send you a checklist of the items that we need from you for the package.
This will be a list of all the enclosures needed.
We have a team of professionals who will work on your package immediately upon submission
to us. Once you receive the checklist of items we are ready to go.
We will very thoroughly inspect every item you submit for any potential problems.
The SBA is very detailed in their inspection, so are we.
We will communicate with you (by e-mail and phone) all the way through the 8a application
process so you always know how your application is progressing.
A professional writer will interview you and prepare the economically and socially
disadvantaged narrative(s) that are such a critical part of your application.
We will do the entire application, double-checking everything to be sure it meets
all SBA guidelines and we will assemble the entire package (usually 3-4 inches thick)
in a binder with a table of contents, tabs for every 8a application section and
an cover letter.
Finally, we will clearly mark all the places in the 8a application where your signature
is needed and will send the completed package so you can sign and forward it to
When we send it, your 8a certification application is ready for the SBA.
