Christine George Design, Napa

“Working with Carolynne Gamble and SBDC has been great support and grounding in my business. I tend to fly above the clouds with my dreams and ambitions... Bouncing ideas off Carolynne has helped make them real.”

West Accounting Services, Napa

“I don’t know where I would be with my business if I hadn’t met with Jerry [Jinnett] ...Jerry is a wealth of information and I highly recommend everyone, that is starting or thinking of starting a business, make an appointment with her.”

“With the help and support of Ray Kimball and the SBDC, this transition from a start-up to an established business has been incredibly smooth.”

"The SBDC opened the possibilities of turning an idea into a reality... What I learned has helped me with other projects I have worked on."

Hip Chick Farms, Sebastopol

“Annie was informative, helpful and supportive. She pushed us to consider elements we had not thought of, which was very helpful in developing our business model.”

Ami Sol, Santa Rosa

“I can say that I started from ground zero, when I came to the SBDC, and that was probably the best business decision I’ve made so far.”

Electronic Solutions, Cloverdale

"The SBDC has given direction and focus to our future… we couldn’t get our hands totally around this project before the SBDC help…"

The Gardening Tutor, Santa Rosa

"I always leave the SBDC excited, energized, and motivated! Completing the homework never fails to improve my business. Janet is honest with me, yet kind and approachable, while providing a wealth of information I can use."
