Client Testimonials

TreeFrog Data Solutions, Cocoa Beach

Thank you for all your guidance. The webinars and team calls helped greatly to navigate through [SBA] PPP and EIDL. The loans saved us. So appreciate all the mentoring and assistance provided.

Martin Duffey and Sandy Pfrimmer [Florida SBDC professionals] not only made me aware of the Florida Disaster Loan but helped me through the process. These funds may very well have saved my business and the incomes of 9 families.

Martin and Sandy [Florida SBDC professionals] were a huge help in understanding the loan process and ensuring I provided all the documents needed to properly apply and qualify for such loan. Their response time was swift, and I felt like they cared about my business and doing everything within their power to ensure that we were able to continue operations despite the uncertainties that COVID presented. Thank you both for caring and helping small businesses like myself.
