Small Businesses - We can Help! 

The City of Rochelle in partnership with Kishwaukee College and the Illinois Small Business Development Center at Waubonsee (SBDC) have partnered to create an Operational Task Force. We will provide no-cost consulting services to help small businesses withstand the evolving situation regarding the Coronavirus outbreak, and the subsequent limits this has on business operations.

This is a rapidly developing situation and as such, we want to deploy as many resources as we can to help you navigate these turbulent times. Sessions are first come, first serve.To get started, contact LaCretia Konan at with questions or to schedule your initial session.
