Brad [Florida SBDC consultant] was a big help in guiding us through the application process for our [SBA] EIDL loan. He also had excellent follow-up to make sure we had any questions or concerns that needed to be answered.

Simplice was great to work with. [She was] very helpful in helping to create a return to work best practices around Covid to add some piece of mind for the team to return back to the office. Very much appreciated!
