Client Testimonials

Neo Broadband, Inc., Doral

Hello SBDC family. Just want to say thank you. During these crazy times, I don’t know if our company would have survived 2020 without your help, all your guides, comments, ideas, or just a video conference to listen to our pain or concern. Your team had been just awesome and helpful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Gloria Martinez

In2Sales, Inc., Doral

Adriana [Florida SBDC consultant] has been a total GAME CHANGER for our group. Not only has she shuffled our ideas to new and modern ways of looking at business, she has a great sense of guidance for B2B strategies which are more limited than B2C. She is guiding us still through a process of total modernization of our image, strategy, and methods. Adriana understands, researches, and goes the extra mile. We are so happy with Adriana that we have referred many friends to use this wonderful program.

Multicultural Food Consulting, Miami

Shelly [Florida SBDC consultant] is a proactive person. She not only advised me with the [SBA] PPP program loan forgiveness application, but she also invited me to participate in the Dale Carnegie program, which supports me to develop skills that allow me to increase my sales and share a customer list. I really appreciated her unconditional help and support. Thank you so much.
