Small Businesses Poised for Second Stage Growth
Established small businesses are essential for community growth. These businesses have made it past the "start up" phase and are therefore more successful than 80% of their peers. They are passionate. They are dedicated. And they are open to hearing new ideas, learning new skills, and expanding their network. They know they need help. We know how to help them. In fact, we are passionate about helping them.
