Affiliate Clients are starting or operating a business located in one of the 7 counties OzSBI serves.
I am an affiliate client at OzSBI with my Wages Brewing Company. I started using OzSBI in 2011 via the class: Operation Jumpstart which was designed to assess the business ideas of potential entrepreneurs. During that class, we wrote a feasibility plan (like a "business plan lite"). It was immensely helpful.
Soon thereafter I joined as a client. I find the mentoring, round table discussions, micro-loan program, and networking opportunities to be important to the development and growth of my business, especially during the months and years from inception to implementation.
After we opened our doors in August 2016, I've continued to find great value in the mentoring program. When we get stressed or don't understand something about business, we can go to our mentors and they help us navigate what to do next. It's an incredibly helpful resource.
If you are thinking of being a client and have questions, feel free to PM me. I will be happy to tell you more. Cheers!

OzSBI mentors helped tremendously in brainstorming new ideas, finding different approaches to issues at hand, helping pull together financial outlines and business plans and working on different ways to contact and get in touch with people in the community who were able to help.
Wages Brewing Company
We had mentors before we opened, but we have no plans to stop meeting with them. They are by far my favorite resource at OzSBI

The Services and Support at OzSBI are outstanding. They go above and beyond to guide you down your entrepreneurial path. The Caliber of the Mentors and Advisers is truly impressive.

If you are wanting to follow your dream of starting and owning your own small business, then OzSBI is the place to start. Mentoring, micro loan program, office space, support-they have it all. I would recommend this organization to anyone!
Ozarks Medical Center
Let me say a big "THANK YOU" for hosting the MTI Coaching and Conflict training. It is by far, the very best training I have ever been through. I literally left a different person than what I entered. That was my first experience with OzSBI. We are so fortunate to have you in our area.

Mentoring keeps you focused and on track on your goals. Working with OzSBI mentors has been an amazing ride. My business has grown incredibly. I have a deeper understanding of my finances and I plan to expand to a second location in the next year.
OzSBI lowers the barrier of entry into any sort of industry by providing infrastructure, financial support, administrative support, and IT.
The office space worked out perfectly for my situation. Fully furnished with phone, internet, and utilities included made it a very professional and economical choice. The OzSbi staff were extremely helpful with everything. I would strongly recommend anyone needing an office to utilize the services OzSBI provides.
