What Our Program Clients Say
We knew very little about opening a business but with our adviser’s help, including everyone at the SOU SBDC, we were able to take our first steps into business ownership. The SBM program was great and it was really informative. The courses helped us follow a path and lay the foundational work for us to open our salon business.

As a new startup company, the SOU SBDC helped us improve every aspect of our business, from creating a business plan and fine-tuning our financials, to helping locate the “right” market.
It is reassuring to know that there are advisers giving their expert knowledge and time to help a new business grow. E-Shelf has changed from a concept to a profitable business with the guidance of the SOU SBDC.
