CYON believes in the power of small businesses because we know they are the cornerstone of vibrant healthy communities.
Business Start Up
From financial assessment of your idea, to the operational challenges you'll face in starting a new business, CYON will ensure you can make well informed decisions that will save you time and money. For most entrepreneurs, wearing all the hats at your young company can result in overwhelm and missed opportunities at a critical time in your company's life cycle. Don't go it alone... You can get the help you need, sometimes even for FREE or at a reduced cost thanks to resources that CYON can tap into to help support new business owners.
Financial Assessments and Return on Investment (ROI) Analysis
Do you have an existing business that is looking to expand or refinance? Would you like to truly understand the financial health of your company? CYON has helped many businesses become stronger through the development of financial literacy and good accounting practices. Creating a good foundation for your business by ensuring financial health is a must for small companies competing against much larger corporations or operating in highly competitive industries. CYON understands that many small businesses use personal funds to expand and grow - don't take a risk on investing in new projects or products until you've done a comprehensive ROI analysis. This will help you plan for the financial strain of expansion and influence decisions around target markets and launch timelines.

CYON has worked with some of the best out there on everything from Lean systems engineering to operational and workflow analysis for companies with over 14,000 employees, multiple locations and complex logistics.

I have had the opportunity to work closely with Jamien Richardson of CYON Solutions for over a year. She shows a strong empathy for the people that she works with and through her experience, contacts and communication skills is able to bring together like-minded companies and individuals to bring projects to fruition.
Jamien has a strong sense for the complexities needed to make projects of whatever size successful and is very adept at guiding people who “have a vision” and bringing together the resources necessary to make visions a reality.
Odd Fellows’ and Rebekahs’ Home of Maine
"Our organization hired CYON Business Solutions in the fall of 2011, to provide direction in ways to “grow” our youth camp. By adopting just some of their suggestions, we were able to increase our camp attendance during the 2012 season by 17%."
