Client Testimonials

Trusted Construction, Inc., Lake Worth

Mike Bell's [consultant] assistance is invaluable. He's an absolute pleasure to work with, as he returns calls, is always on time, and is always available to answer my questions. He is the reason we referred several new businesses to the Florida PTAC.

Richard McCalla

Engineering Technologies, LLC, West Palm Beach

[The Florida] SBDC, Sandra, and Deborah [consultants] were extremely helpful and able to answer our questions intelligently. We learned about I-Corps, value proposition templates, and the importance of interviews with our potential customers. They continue to be very helpful as we pursue SBIR benefits, and, we hope, successful results from them. Our success, limited so far, has been most rewarding. We received an ASCE trophy and $5,000 and were a runner-up in CADE Prize 2020. We're very thankful for the Florida SBDC and all it has brought us!
