All the payment platforms, social media and finances can be really confusing, so it was really great to have direction broken down into easy steps instead of feeling overwhelmed. It’s always nice to have a person to bounce ideas off of that has experience.
The SBDC support is amazing. I am able to learn every time I attend a class or work on a specific piece of my business. Last year I was able to create a profit and invested in a second food truck.
Without David and SBDC this transition and journey would have been almost impossible. We were in a unique situation, opening a new business in place of something that the community knew. David is always there to answer any questions. This helped immensely.
SBDC has been very helpful and supportive
The SBDC has been an awesome resource for me and my business.
I view the services that were offered through the SBDC as a vital opportunity to network and to learn about what resources are there. Portland has a vital food landscape, but for a foraging food entrepreneur, it’s hard to pick through everything out there
You’ll never experience what business is like today, until today. The SBDC really taught me to do what I do best, and to outsource the rest.
If you just need to bounce an idea off of someone who’s been in the industry and has experience in the area of what you want to do, it’s just good to go talk with (SBDC) and see if they can help make it more simple.
Seeing the SBDC made the reality of opening our salon happen.
Their services are amazing. We’re on the cusp of doing great things in our industry. None of it would be possible without the SBDC.
