Success: YOU


Many of our successful clients first became aware of how transformative our services can be by attending one of the workshops we host throughout the year.

Think you might be ready to create a business plan? Our business planning workshops will teach you how to test and validate your ideas, and communicate your plan to potential partners and funders--critical skills for the aspiring entrepreneur!


Prefer the one-on-one approach? We’ve helped dozens of entrepreneurs find their way to success by providing concrete business counseling based in decades of experience supporting small businesses. To schedule your appointment, give us a call at 855.INFO.JVS (855.463.6587).


If you really want to make the most of what the Duman Employment Center has to offer, there’s no better step you can take than to apply for our six-week accelerator program. The Duman Accelerator ties together all our services into one package: you get training in fundamental business principles, develop valuable and lasting relationships with volunteer mentors from within your specific business area, learn how to complete a business plan, and assemble everything you need to apply for a low interest business loan.

Taking The First Step

We’ve helped dozens of small businesses achieve their dreams, and we know that the most important resource we have to work with is your own faith in, and dedication to, your own vision. We believe in businesses that believe in themselves, and nothing makes us happier than seeing that belief fulfilled by your success.

Wherever you are on the path, why not take the next step and reach out to see how we can help your business become as rewarding as you know it can? We’re ready when you are, so get in touch today!
