Designed for all stages of business development, themed workshops range from transforming ideas into business plans, to developing growth strategies for existing businesses.  The Capital Regions provides a road map to support and develop small businesses through every stage of their business development.

Most of our certified, professional business counselors have owned or managed successful businesses. Through practical experience and continual professional development, they have gained the knowledge and insight to help resolve problems or develop and implement new strategies for success. We train and collaborate with local business leaders to stay abreast of economic trends, market conditions and financial resources. We are the resource center for Montgomery County and Prince George’s County businesses.



We support the local community and the needs of individual clients. We held our first Retail Business Networking Event at one of our local clients Retail establishment. Over 40 people attended, and we provided training and resource information in a relaxed atmosphere.

“Our Restaurant Specialist addressed the Networking attendees and discussed the State of Small Businesses in 2014!”
