Kent Nelson started QuickStart in Appleton, Wisconsin, with one employee, himself, in 1998 and offered only one service, QuickBooks® Consulting. In 2001, the Company was incorporated as QuickStart, Inc. Since then, the Company has grown to five employees and now offers several services including; Business Plan Assistance, Financing Assistance, SBA Loan Packaging, and other Small Business Consulting. The Company offers these services to small businesses primarily throughout Northeast Wisconsin, but is currently expanding into other areas across Wisconsin.

Our company has offices in the Fox Cities and Green Bay, but we have assisted businesses throughout the United States!

QuickStart received the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year Award in 2007, and is also now an SBA Approved Technical Assistance Provider for SBA Community Express Program.
