Let’s Start Your Advising Request

Selecting from one of the options below will start your process of creating a myTSBDC account and completing an eRFC (electronic Request For Counseling). We require all clients to have both of these before starting counseling services. This allows our organization to provide you with the most up-to-date counseling resources and our counselors to begin working on your case. Please note that we cannot schedule requests for individual assistance without this form. Once the form is submitted, you will be contacted by the Tennessee SBDC that serves your area to set up an initial advising session.

Local Advising

This option will route your request to a local center that serves your area. You will conduct your meetings face-to-face with this adviser and have an on-ground, local contact.

Virtual Advising

This option will route your request to our virtual service center. You will conduct your meetings through email, phone, and instant messaging programs with an adviser.

International Trade Advising

This option will route your request to our international trade service center. Their Global Certified Business Professionals can provide you with import and export assistance.
