When you and your small business become an EMAP client there will absolutely be no hidden charges or service fees to render EMAP services. All EMAP services are provided through support from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Small Business Development Centers (SBDC), and our host university institutions (Widener University, University of Pittsburgh, Shippensburg University).
As a client of EMAP and the Pennsylvania SBDC, you will have access to the full spectrum of state-wide resources including assistance, guidance, recommendations and education, but ultimately, you are your own best advocate and will get the most out of the service if you’re a true partner; engaged, responsive and motivated.
For example, you will likely be asked to provide some background including documents we’ll ask you to gather and send to us in a timely fashion. We will have ongoing questions and will need you to simply be available to answer them.
