I used to work in BAE Systems as a financial analyst. After 4 years I have decided to have my own business. I heard about SBDC form one of my business professors at William Paterson. I found out SBDC’s office location and one day on my lunch break at BAE Systems I went to SBDC office, they have booked my appointment with Reina. After I have spoken to her I found out so many incredible resources that can help me creating my Business from ground zero. Reina is very resource full person and a great mentor. She has helped me from creating a company to the sales of my product. I had a great experience and I highly recommend every startup company to consult with SBDC for their every need. SBDC is a very resource full department that can walk you through every process from a business plan to end customer.

Thank you, Reina, and to SBDC at WPU for providing me the opportunity to learn about Marketing in the virtual space.  The session was very informative and targeted to audience participation.  I feel confident on my business planning adventure, I enjoyed the modeling of the different business ideas altogether.  It provided me with a better framework of mind when I re-do my business plan!.  The SWOT analysis helped me brainstorm better and develop more ingenuity in my process of thinking.  I respect the process and hope to connect again in the next steps and sign up for my business with NJ.

Pyco, LLCCreating our company in March of 2014 was made possible because of the William Paterson University SBDC. The SBDC team not only helped us form our company, but provided guidance with budgeting and marketing strategies. And, more importantly, they gave us the confidence we needed to make our dream a reality.

Our community is better today because of the continued efforts of the SBDC. They provide a service that empowers entrepreneurs like us to keep manufacturing here in NJ and the US in general.
