Services: Business Counseling and Workshops

ROPE business-building services are delivered in both group workshops and one-on-one counseling sessions. The approach we take is typically determined by the location and number of people interested in a service, your previous business background, and the needs of your particular business situation.

All of ROPE's services are available free of charge to residents of Southeast Alaska.


ROPE offers courses and workshops that cover the central concepts to a successful business. Our workshops may be lead by our own staff or by hand-picked consultants, depending on the course content and the level of experience needed to lead the workshop.

Here's how it works. First, select one of the topics from the list to the left that a small group of people would be interested in attending. Then, give us a call at the 1-800 number above or submit a request online.

One-On-One Business Counseling

ROPE staff are also available to provide direct support — in most cases by phone, but occasionally in person (as travel schedules allow). Whether you want to bounce around a business idea, find local marketing resources, or are looking for an advisor to assist you through the incubation period of your business, we're available to work with you.

To set up a free, confidential one-on-one session with a ROPE counselor, just call the 1-800 number above or submit a request online.
