Please read these terms below before submitting:

I request business management consulting from the Wells Fargo Center for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (WFCSBE) at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). I agree to cooperate should I be selected to participate in surveys designed to evaluate assistance services. I authorize the WFCSBE at CSUN tofurnish relevant information to the student Consultants, although I expect them to hold that information in strict confidence.

I understand the WFCSBE program at CSUN is managed such that enrolled students are not assigned to a particular client but rather select clients from the available list based on a student-client match in interests, skills, abilities, and availability. Therefore, I understand that by completing this Request for Consulting form, I am not guaranteed consulting services nor do the WFCSBE or CSUN have an obligation to provide consulting services to me.

I further understand that any consultant has agreed not to:

  1. recommend goods or services from sources in which s/he has an interest and
  2. accept fees or commissions developing from this consulting relationship.

In consideration of California State University, Northridge furnishing management and/or technical assistance, I waive all claims against the WFCSBE and the University arising from this assistance. By submitting this form to CSUN you accept the above mentioned terms.
