sbdc AT Caz CoWorks
The Onondaga Small Business Development Center (SBDC) works with entrepreneurs and small business owners in Madison County out of our satellite office at Caz CoWorks.
Our Cazenovia satellite location has become a busy hub since it was first established in 2015. Businesses in Madison County are rural, and it can be hard to navigate the opportunities available to them within their area. That is why we are dedicated to providing up-to-date information, resources, and opportunities for small businesses in this area!
At this location we proudly serve Chittenango, Cazenovia, Canastota, Morrisville, parts of Hamilton, and the surrounding areas. So don't worry about driving to us in our main offices in Onondaga, we are where you are! Take advantage of meeting a NYS SBDC Advanced Certified Advisor in your own neighborhood, located at 87 Albany Street in Cazenovia, NY.
Appointments made for this location available on Mondays and Thursdays from 8:30AM - 4:30PM.
MELISSA ZOMRO DAVIS
Advanced NYSBDC Certified Business Advisor
Melissa has spent some time in the education world, but followed her passion to be a small business owner in the equine industry. In 2006, she became a client of the SBDC to begin the journey of starting her own business. Over the years of being a business owner, she expanded the business from one Brick-and-Mortar to adding a mobile unit that traveled up and down the east coast. During her business years, she continued her education by obtaining her P&C license to sell equine insurance as an extension of her tack shop in CNY. During her time as a small business owner, she has gained a great deal of experience in every aspect of the day-to- day operations, sales and marketing of owning a company.
Melissa operates a satellite office in Cazenovia offering her counseling services for start-up and existing small businesses through a wide range of networks in Western Madison County, as well as, having office hours in Onondaga County at Onondaga Community College.
She is an active member of her community. Melissa's community involvement includes being the Chair of the Board of Cazenovia Community Preschool, a current member of the Chamber of Cazenovia representing the SBDC, completing a term as a member of the Board of the Friends of Lorenzo, and is a former member of the HCBD in Cazenovia, while she was a business owner on Main Street. Recently, Melissa was named the Top 40 Under 40 in CNY.
Melissa earned a B.S. in Social Science from Cazenovia College, as well as, a M.S.T. in Teaching from LeMoyne College with a certification in Special Education.
