We accomplish our mission by assisting small business owners in preparing businesses plans, educating them on the financial aspects of running their business, and guiding them through the business lending process. QuickStart, Inc. has helped hundreds of small businesses, both through the services we offer and through the numerous hours of time that has been volunteered.  Kent Nelson is the President of QuickStart, Inc which was founded in 1998 in Appleton, Wisconsin.  Since then, the Company has grown to five employees and now offers several services including; Financing Assistance, Business Plan Assistance, Small Business Consulting, SBA Loan Packaging, and QuickBooks Consulting. All QuickStart’s consultants have either their CPA or accounting backgrounds. In the past the Company has offered these services to small businesses primarily throughout the Fox Valley, but has just opened an office in Green Bay, Wisconsin in May 2006.

Our specialty is helping businesses obtain financing for their business by preparing a business plan. We will work with our clients to prepare a comprehensive business plan, including financial projections.  We assist them throughout the entire business start-up, purchase or expansion process.  We ensure the proper amount of financing is received, as well as determine what the financing options are available for your business such as SBA, WHEDA, WDC, or Grants.  We will help you apply for the grant available through Wisconsin Entrepreneurs' Network that pays for up to 75% of our fees, if you qualify.
