The Resource Navigator®

Map your resources.

The Resource Navigator® is a dynamic, interactive directory that provides easy identification, organization and visibility of a region's support resources. Users enter a few pieces of information, and the smart search engine offers a list of resource providers whose offerings meet their unique needs. The Resource Navigator® has proven to be effective in a number of markets, including entrepreneurs and veterans looking for business assistance, as well as families seeking for autism resources.

Administrators like:

  • The easy-to-use database that efficiently captures information about entrepreneurship resources in the community

  • Simple reports that track system usage by zip code, industry, stage, assistance requested and more

  • Customizable search categories that can be adapted to meet the needs of any community

Users like:

  • The easy-to-use point and click interface that gets them directly to the resources they need to succeed

  • The ability to find all kinds of resources, no matter their device and/or browser

  • The expertly curated content complete with direct contact person who they can reach out to and connect with
