“The SBDC will work with you at whatever level you are at. If you’re pretty far along in the planning process, as we were, they will make what you are putting together really work effectively. It was amazing, they made this happen for us.”

"As a new business owner, I felt comfortable being naive in asking questions, and at the same time felt confident that the support I got was trustworthy, because of the hands on approach and explanation. The SBDC can assist with anything relating to start-up, they will ask questions and ensure that you are on track."

"My favorite part of working with the SBDC is being able to talk through issues that arise within my business and create solutions that not only eradicate my concerns but create a healthier business, streamline systems and boost moral."
