Total support. After 27 years in business, I now have the tools with their guidance on how to get my business out there to help so many people!

My counselor was so helpful with my cash-flow spreadsheet and business plan. She is following up with me and had lots of practical tips for small business help.

Good classes for business development at a variety of levels - great resources for entrepreneurs just starting out or those already well on their way.

It was great attending your presentation today. I learned a lot of new ways to look for funding and a new approach at finding funds to grow my business.
