Success Stories

Client Testimonials

Regent Medical and Aesthetics Clinic, Perry

I went from nothing, no direction, to opening my own health care clinic in a rural area. He [my consultant] pointed me in the right direction to get an EIDL (Economic Injury Disaster Loan)... He helped me get it all together and now I am open and hope to grow more to help my community.

Dulcie Yelverton

Estuary Oysters, LLC, Crawfordville

Keith [Florida SBDC consultant] listened and helped us find funding to initiate the company, hazard relief after Hurricane Michael wiped us out, support money through this COVID pandemic and further funding for potential growth into 2021 and beyond. Because of Keith, we are expanding our workforce, improving our environment, and helping to resurrect this coastal community with sustainable jobs for generations to come. Obviously, I can't say enough about Keith and his team. The past, present, and future would be impossible without him!
